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.
There are several more benefits to being a registered user, but you'll have to join our little community to find out all the "secrets".

I have acquired the dual-line addiction, since I started flying an old-school, spyro-jet kite that was my mother's. I live in Indiana, and since I don't have the winds of the coasts, I bought a 4-d. I flew the spyro for 3 months acquiring the basic flight skills. I've had the 4-d for about a month, and have had it out in some decent winds that bulleted it around the sky making me glad I didn't buy a Micron! I have decent side-slides, and can turtle the 4-d, but it seems really touchy.

I have an E3 on the way, and I guess my question is... Will I be able to learn to trick easier with a full size, than a superlight?

I wouldn't fly the 4D in anything over 4MPH. It's a very light kite.

Bigger, slower kites can make some things easier, but a full size kite with the low wind range of a 4D would be expensive. The E3 and 4D are a very good combo. You'll go far.

The E3 will definitely take you to new heights.  Wink

You'll enjoy your new E3.  I have two, one in Citrus and one in graphite.  Both look great in the sky.
