One of the most popular sections of the GWTW Forum has long been the Swap Meet.  A great place to sell old, seldom flown kites or to get great deals on used (gently flown) kites.  Only registered users can see the Swap Meet section, let alone wheel and deal.  1000's (literally) of kites have changed hands thanks to the Swap Meet.

I;m thinking i may want one of Lams Fearless kites.I have a light Sea Devil and i like it a lot but i havent bought anything new in a while so i was thinking of getting one but i kind of wondered if anyone around the Seattle/Everett area has one i could test fly  to see if i click with it before i really pull the trigger..

John,
I live about half way between Kite Hill and the trestle.................Pm or e-mail and we can probably set up some time to meet (somewhere) and I'll let you have a go with what we got..........(Caution: we only have a standard vent so we can't fly in anything over thirty Wink Wink  LOL )
That didn't come out right.......We have everything but the light vent. (we should be able to fly down to a negative half mile per hour, then............. Huh    LMLs)

This coming week I have off sure isn't looking good, but at least we can touch base about our schedules...

thanks,
Jim

Must 86 it was good meeting you in Wildwood this weekend. Next time I will try the Feraless Light. Indeed the Tatto takes some time to adjust from the Sea Devils. I am sticking with the SDs for personal reasons ... but the Tatto is my go to kite in very low winds for recreation. As we discussed it sits back deep in the backflip so JLs to the fade position requires some adjusting but backspins of course and Insanes are real easy. Mine came with 3pt lower spreader but framed 2pt as I told Lam I would ALSO want to fly it up to 10 mph. Even with its smaller size it has much potential. It does give a new meaning to trick flying in an SUL environment. Still working it ...  Grin Grin Grin

Hey APJ...
Likewise, always great to meet forum members in person. I think both the FLs that I have, the SUL and the vented light have a different feel from all my other kites when they're on their backs. The flipover can be troublesome, but it's just a matter of time and getting used to it. A few people that flew the vented light had the same trouble as me, and they were much more experienced pilots, no doubt. Then there was another guy that came over with a beer in his hand and asked to give the lines a tug. Well, right off the bat, he did just about every trick that I knew to exist, no getting used to anything ! Most people that I flew with were yank & spank fliers, and I like to try to take a smooth, subtle input approach. It seems to work with the Tattoo, so I'm going with it...
