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".

My friends Steve and Marcela found a kite bag at a group yard sale.

Inventory:

1 2-pocket MLD bag
1 3-stack Rev II (well used)
2 Rev II (look unflown, vivid pink)
1 Spectra Sport Reactor Pro (above average)
1 Spectra Sport 3/4 Reactor Pro (very nice)
1 Fizz Phantom (looks brand new)
1 Skynasaur (looks new but poorly made)
1 AirFX RWB (2 cracked lower spreaders, sail is fine)
6 line sets various
2 sets of Rev handles
1 1000' Spectra 135 lb line reel

The woman selling the kites said she was selling them for her boyfriend.
Her boyfriend had been given the bag and never flown any of them.

Quiz:
Guess the total price Marcela paid for the entire bag and contents.

Don't know.

But they'll have to give a description past what I've presented to warrant delving

into the matter.

Hope not.  Smiley

I'd prefer to consider them rescued from non-use than recovered from stolen.  Sad

Wow, even if the correct one was the highest it is still a bargain!
What luck finding this?

Indeed let us hope this is not stolen equipment...
