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".

That worries me  Embarrassed

I try to be responsible and have moved many on over the years, you can only fly so many in a day  Smiley
I probably still have 30~40 at the moment if you count things like my buggy kites and single liners but there are only around 10 sport kites in the 'A Bag' at any given time.

The wife doesn't even ask "is that a new kite?" anymore. My only wish list is a BPro, Bazzer Eyes, and a Custom Zen. Well maybe another Fearless Light. Alfredo I've had many of your listed kites at one time or another plus have many Custom Builder Kites most who no longer build.

For me?

Replacement parts for the old school stunters I have from companies that no longer produce said kites.

Some of my really old beasts have solutions I've fabricated to continue to be able to fly.

Looking over the wish list, I'd be interested in a Talon or a Transformer and maybe a B Series Pro but I've got more than I can fly right now but I can't move them on because I could be a hoarder if I worked at it. (I have a real nice R-Sky Team Next Up that really needs to see more action. I DID  finally take out the vented B Series a couple days ago at lunch.)

Alfredo: Your list is SERIOUSLY long! I'd trim down to a few from each builder. A Blue Moon, a Skysport Design, a Benson, a Skyburner,  maybe a L'Atelier (I love the Transfer xt.r!). That way you can have a flavor of the day.
