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 bought one last weekend (5/23) from Seaside Kites at the Hammonasset Kite Festival. I'm sure they have more if you call them.

Keeping in mind I have all of 5 hours total time on any quad (almost none on a Rev), I thought it flew nicely, even in the 15+ winds we had. I could hold an inverted hover rock solid, and even a 45 hover wasn't hard. Some friends also flew it and liked it. The one comment they made was that it didn't spin as tightly as a Rev. Personally, I didn't see that. But, since it has a gull wing shape when tensioned, it kinda makes sense.

One thing I will warn about though. The lines provided were no where near equalized. I didn't check them and it took a while to realize why I couldn't get it to hold at all! Almost 6 inches of difference! Once I got out my lines, it flew great.

The handles provided are like 12 -13 inch and padded all the way to the top, past the line connection. I haven't really used them yet since my handles are on my 80' line and that's what I used.

Since I have a hard time justifying the expense of a Rev, and I think the majority of them are really ugly (or just boring designs), I think this is a really good deal. I've seen them listed online for around $107. if you're not stuck on flying Rev, this is a good alternative, and the graphics are cool!

Just my 2 cents.

Just get both... then you can be fickle without worrying about ordering the second one later.  Wink
