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".

Tonight at the Friday Night Fly, we had a return pilot.

Tony had been in Hawaii for 5 years and is now back in Las Vegas.

And he was flying a SuperFly, which I've never flown.

Well that kite is Super Tricky and so far from what I want in a kite.

I could yoyo take-off with it easily. It seemed to roll out of one trick

and start another, just waiting for me to tell it what to do. I couldn't

even react to it quickly enough. I could tell that I had once again found

a kite that I'm not good enough to appreciate.

So I flew:

SuperFly
Sixth Sense
Sixth Sense 85%
Opium
SkyKiller
Aura SUL Spider

And the verdict is:

I like kites that are between 7.5 and 8 feet and fly normally
with the occasional trick or 2 thrown in. I'm so old I make
old-school look new.

Website discussion?  This seems kite related.  Undecided

I have a SF and it is above my abilities as well.  This year I endeavor to complete my training and be worthy of such a kite.

The SF is an inspirational kite for sure.  Perhaps some of its design ideas could be mixed in with a classic ballet design. Would make for an interesting kite project that even us old guys could appreciate.  Hmm.  Cool
