I was perusing OfferUp and found some kites for sale. The seller wasn't too clear on what was there, the pictures were just jumbles of kite bags. Anyway, there were two pairs of Rev handles, so I thought that I would take a look.
I drove away with van full of kites and kite fabric. They seller wanted to get rid of all of it, so I just took it without looking at what all was there.
I opened up a few bags as we were unloading the van. Many of the kites are cheap junk, but there were at least 10 large kite bags. Two were large 10-16 foot Delta Coynes. There was a Cody kite that I couldn't even figure out how to set up.
Anyway, my experience is mostly with stunt kites and small single lines. Are there tricks to flying these larger guys? I know that for really large kites, I see that they are anchored to vehicles. Is there a way to estimate how much pull a kite has? I assume that one would want to leather gloves on hand, anything else?
It is going to take me a while to go through everything to see what is there. There was a train of 20 early 90's stunt kites. A lot of Roks. Oh, and a 1951 C9 28' parachute. Not sure what I will do with that.
