Welcome to the GWTW Forum.
Guests (non-registered users) can view the forum but are unable to post.  If you don't have anything to say then why would you bother to register?
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".

Forgot who posted it (forgive me), but I think there are many upgrades available for the Addiction.  I think Fast Eddy even standardized some of them.

you could ask Steve if he still has any of the French Connections offered earlier..


Think the deals were on the French Connection and a bit less for the French Kiss.

French Connection UL & French Kiss

http://www.gwtwforum.com/index.php?topic=4433.0

I don't know if they are still available being a closeout, if so they are a steal.


The kite the original poster refered to may be a fine flying kite for a day at the park flying a few loops and writing your name in the sky, having a fiberglass frame it won't be up to much past that.

Entry level pricing for a new decent quality "ready to fly" kite with lines runs $50/55 for a smaller kite like the Beetle, Jazz or Rock On. Expect to pay in the neighborhood of $100 for a full size kite as posted, there are some mid-sized kites falling between those ranges. At those prices you are getting all the 'buzz' words like "Carbon Fiber Frame" & "Spectra Lines", they really do make a difference. The other plus is you'll be buying a product from a manufacturer who has been around long enough to show they are not just in the business of taking your money in return for a shoddy product. And from a dealer, whether online or a store, who will offer after the sale service & support.

The Prism Quantum is a great starter kite and can be had for $100 with lines.

Yup the Quantum is the one I am looking at. Hopefully I will be able to place an order for it soon.

I'd get the Premier Widow. About 160ish bucks with lines included. Awesome kite.
