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".

They still make Chikara don't they?

Googling around, they have it for sale at Blboquet..

Someone must have it for sale over here surely?


Peter said that the kite is an AerZero SUL. Here's some specs that I was able to dig up on it. http://www.kites.org/kitefantastic/kites/spec_aerzero.htm

Here's a picture of the fabric with a ruler for scale. I hope that this helps with the identification of the fabric. This stuff is paper thin and is very translucent.



I'm not sure if there's a way to view it full size on the forums, so just in case, here's a link to the photo:

It seems to be coated (shiny) on one side only.

Toray Industries Chikara is coated on both sides.

So, not Chikara I think.

That looks like PC31, that is still available.

Peter originally used P31 which isn't available any more but a look at http://web.archive.org/web/20061109084723/http://www.sportkite.com/
suggests he did change to PC31 later on.

Hey Bill. You still have that photo of all your PBSKs set up?

Folks, Bill has one of the great PBSK collections.

Hello JimB,

Not sure where that picture might be.
It was for a Dan W. contest as I remember.

I only have four PBSK's left.
Two Warriors, a Warrior SUL, and a VP2000.
Sold or traded the Wind Whips, Wild Childs, and Bad Boys.
Some very sweet kites all.

Be well,
Bill Haebler
