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".

Nice list!  What if I told that you only need 2 of these and an SUL - would you split the savings with me?   Smiley

It was fun running into you at kite hill last weekend, but let's hope for less mudd and much smoother wind soon!  Smiley

This is nothing to do with need. It's all about want.

Some men just want to watch the world burn but very few need to watch the world burn. Let people have their wish lists, their wholly unrealistic wish lists  Wink

Better double check your prices.
Then add shipping.  Wink

I thought that was a little less than the last time I did the math...   Wink and shipping is crazy!!! bassicaly about $100 per kite... at least judging from when I got my Talon.

I thought about spending some time drafting up my wishlist, and then I read something in another forum that made it seem like a moot point.

This is not someone's wishlist, but what they actually purchased.

No, it's not kites, but flashlights (sorry for the long list, but it's hard to appreciate the scope without it).  The level of <* fill in euphemism here *> is shared across disciplines though:

Well the mind  boggles $30,000 on torches. The really amazing part is the footnotes, surely some "spousal units" would be clubbing said collector with a PhotonFanatic Double Grooved DLC Ti about the head. Wow odd collection!
