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.

I fully appreciate the ability of trees to attract kites. They have special powers that way.

On the last couple Premier roks I picked up I changed out most of the stringy stuff.

-Found some of the sleeved bow lines to be too slippery so changed them out for good old fashioned tensioners (a button will do in a pinch).
-Found some of the bridle lines to be too thin and again too slippery so changed them out for new bridle lines. This is mainly for the center piece between the top and bottom where line that is too thin can be a bit hard on the fingers while tuning.
-By the way loose the rings, just larks head the bridle lines onto the cross spars.
-Found the pig tail knot for the angle adjustment too hard to adjust so took it off and put it back on with a prussik (double larks head) knot instead.

I know this sounds like a lot of bother for a kite that should be ready to fly and you can just use it the way it came, I did on my first two. But on the last two I went ahead and made the changes and find it works out a lot better for me.

They are still a great kite. One of my favorites.
