The oldest kite still in my bag is the HQ Shadow, which does all the older-school stuff that I can think of as well as most of the newer-school stuff.  I would like to grab a Vapor at some point if the opportunity ever presents itself.

I figure I'd chime in.

Kite bag old hands:
TOTL Hawaiian Team
TOTL Hawaiian Spin-Off
TOTL North Shore Radical
Colossal Kiteworks GBK
Force 10 - original 15' delta

Newer Kites:
Premier Kites TNT
New Tech Detonator
New Tech Thunderfoil2 2.4m

Then the question mark kites:
I've got a weird little stunt kite someone gave me that has a very small wingspan and is very fast that
doesn't appear to have any kind of identifying marks on it anywhere.

I also still have the sail and some remnants of the original "Go Fly a Kite 2200cc" stunter which was the first one I ever bought and part of another one..  I suppose I could create one good one out of the two broken ones but why bother?  The thing only flew in 25 mph winds.

I've also got a strange indonesian kite that looks like a butterfly that was hand painted, a couple of
9 foot single line deltas and two six foot deltas. 

That's about it.

The go to for those windy days when you just want to fly that one because you want to is an OZ.  If you never heard of it was made in Altamonte Springs, Fl in the late eighties to early ninties.  This thing flies like a rock on a rope and makes enough noise you've likely heard it regardless where you are.  There are several (kiter for too many) modern kites but sometimes it's just an OZ day.  Winds are running 15-20mph could be an OZ weekend now that I think about it.  Thanks. gotta go get out that OZ.

I'm new to this sight but have been flying since the Eighties. Old kites still flying, Original TOTL Hawian, Spinoff, Noth shore Extreme, and Sizzle UL, Prism Ion, Flexi Split and Neon (pink). I even have a couple most of you may not have heard of. One Brighton Beach Asilimar from Delray Beach Florida, and a Key West built Xzeta w/Xzelerater bar (wind range 0 to 90 mph) originaly designed for pre-hurricane flying. All together I have a fourty stunt kite collection. I just don't know when to stop. Maybe when the wind stops blowing?

This is where I've downloaded my kite photos
