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 don't see anything you've done needing an apology.  Smiley

Once you loose the fear of breaking your $500 kite you keep pushing the tricks harder and harder. It's taken me six years and and I can now flic flac down to under one foot from the ground and then fly the fade to recover; ie rising fade and controlling it up and down in the transition. I have to many Level One kites now but the Black Pearl looks great in custom colors, they do make them. Cheers

Hopefully I can test the pearl next week. Being released so close to the Eternity and Gent just happened.

All three kites have been developed by independent designers, who approached LevelOne for serial production. LevelOne aka Jens Frank seems to be open for new developments and challenges. Bring it on.

Some detailed pictures of the new Level One built quality:-



The noses are made of lorry covering material.



The Black Pearl std has a 15g brass weight INSIDE the spine and a leech line (blue).



Yoyo stops made of EXEL connectors. DACRON tape as leading edge tunnel.



Upper spreader connector APA tiny. White sail material KC3 / 28g per m2.



Nitros as lower spreaders; connector is a APA size D. Blue sail Icarex 30g, which is more like 34g/m2.



Stand-off connectors on the sail side with screws. Re-inforcement with laminated mylar (black).



Re-inforcement of trailing edge (white).
