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".

My little nephew stepped on the center spine and broke it. Does anyone know the specs for a replacement center spine ?

First, for $2.50 USD plus shipping, Flying Wings will send you a new one.  Contact Anne Palopo <> or call them @

Pacific Quest, Inc.
dba. Flying Wings Kites
1141 Ringwood Court, Suite #130
San Jose, CA 95131
Toll Free: 1.800.437.7071
TEL: 408-955.9804 ext. 117
Fax: 408-955-9808

They were very helpful and nice.
I would have them send you a new nose piece too, since it is hard to get the spine out of the nose.  It is glued in and unless you are better with a drill than me, you can easily wreck the soft poly.  The dihedral and knock at the tail end slide off (the latter takes a sharp smack to pop it off.)  Altogether, the shipping costs more than the parts. Cheesy
If you have a good kite store nearby and can get there rod, it is 3mm x 109 cm.

Good winds.
