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.

I have been asked a few questions about this kite and don't have any answers.  Does anyone remember it, it's specs, frame, etc.

I remember it received a good review in Kite Passion, particularly as a team kite as it apparently flew very consistently across the range.

Eliot has made the plan available on the Kite Plan Base.

I remember the kite being super solid tracking wise, and pretty 'smooth' feeling. Tricks ok too. I dont remember a TON as I was really little, but I do remember liking the kite a lot.

Hi all.
Newcomer to this forum. I fly that kite just about every chance I get...(read that any rare time I can find 8mph wind or better) I just recently acquired it in near mint condition in an auction. I have seen it fly in the hands of an expert (not me) and it is really impressive. if there is anything I can measure for you let me know.
