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".

Being on this forum for a while, i rarely see people talking about JoE's kites or SporteKitesDesigns SEVEN.

Anything guys?

are they good kites? bad kites?

All i really hear people talk about are Hydra, Mantis, Exile, E3, Quantum Pro, etc....never really these kites.

Let me know!

I've seen plenty of people talk about the JoE Talon.

Nice kite especially if you like Benson kites - similar feel (BTW that's a compliment not a suggestion of plaigurism!). Fantastic build quality too.

However if you don't like the Deep Space , you might not like the Talon...

A quick search brought up 5 pages on the Talon.  Wink

Well frazer was one of the European kite makers shills Wink

more along the lines of they are a wee bit harder to get over if someone is looking to get one they might end up going over to another sport kite forum to learn more since that is the country forum of the JOE kites...and there is better access to the EU for sevens et al.

Kites kayaks & corgis again!!!

The Seven is in a similar vein to the DS and Talon.  More pitchy than the DS and about the same as the Talon.  Only had about an hour on somebody else's strings, but my initial impression is that the Seven is a really nice kite.

Similar build quality to Benson and JoE too. Smiley
