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.

My goal this summer is to fly more and carry less kites around.  Trying to make it work with two kites just ticked me off, so I'm asking for your favorite 3 kites to take to the field.

Prism Prophecy bag.
Padded
Holds 4 kites
Holds 4 linesets

And as a bonus, it's long enough to carry a Prophecy.  Huh

um, maybe I wasn't clear.  Sorry.... I meant what three kites would you put in the bag?  Or more simply put, if you had to limit yourself to three kites for a trip to the field, what would they be?  Even kites you might not currently own..

I edited the O P to more clearly reflect the intent of the thread.

Low wind: Nirvana SUL (1-4 mph)
Moderate Wind: Exile (5-8 mph)
High wind: Rev B series  mid vent (9-15 mph)

From the posts I've seen I'm wondering about the vented Talon for 9+ mph. (I've been kind of disappointed with the vented Nirvana and xt.r) Although the Minigem doesn't mind higher wind it requires really fast inputs. I'm still voting for the Revs when the wind is too high to make duals fun.

It's tough deciding on only three kites. I'd probably add in the Nirvana UL and maybe the Widow Maker too.

3 Fearless.  If I wanted to get by with only 2, then the SUL and Light (the Light can easily fly in standard territory).

My speed bag has those and 2 others, the Shadow and my Exile (ok, I cheated by mentioning my other favorites!)  Smiley

I think I'm going to use the speed bag a lot too, this summer.  I'm thinking Deep Space, Exile and Nirvana std.
