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.

Lots of trick kites in production now have at least a review or two about the flight characteristic. I was kind of interested about the latest kite design,  Maraca, by Christopher Fokken (Spider Kites). Anyone flown this before?? I would like to know more about the kites. Maybe a comparison with other kite on the flight characteristic and its trick capability?

While the profile looks a bit different, the panel layout sure looks almost identical to the HQ Tramontana UL.

I believe you mean Christoph Fokken.

Sorry...i mean Christoph Fokken. First look i thought it was tramontana with a little new look but the specs are totally different.. the LE is more straight n the spine is longer with 2.3m wingspan. I hope i have at least some info on the kite or vids if i'm lucky. Anyone with any info on this?
