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".

I got to try the prototype for these in Tokyo last year...

Really nice sail pressure, loads well, very precise.

Moderate but sufficient trick ability for team (cascade, kombo, insane, etc).

Will be getting a pair of these for me and my okusan. Smiley

Me too.
When these kites first appeared on the (old) forum I contacted Flying Wings to get details.  They had no idea what I was talking about.  My understanding is that these were made by Bell for use by that team and there are currently no plans for Flying Wings to produce them.  Just to be sure nothing has changed I will be calling Flying Wings today to confirm this.

I wonder what the pricing will be. I'm getting to old for fippy floopy flying everytime I go out. In my book team flying or percision flying is harder, that's why I went to flippy floopy. Time to get back to the basics again Wink

Pffft, every kite today is bastardized from FireDarts, Hawaiians, Spinoffs, Tracers and MEFMS if you ask me... Whatever. Tongue

Amazing how things look when you've got more than a 10 year kite memory span.

I called Flying Wings today to confirm what they told me earlier this year ... these kites are not being made by Flying Wings.

Bell Chiu, Flying Box Studio, designed these.  Bell Chiu, Flying Box Studio, has designed kites for Flying Wings.  Flying Wings does not produce everything that Bell designs.

I'd really appreciate it if Bell would come on here and clarify this.

Bell told me that he was making them to order but people would need to order a minimum of two at a time.
