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".

I think that is the kite that turns into a crime fighting robot whenever trouble is near. (Previous conversation on the old forum) Good to have around soccer players.    Wink Wink

I fully appreciate the ability of trees to attract kites. They have special powers that way.

I've had mine for a couple of years and really love it.  Very trickable, but also nice solid tracking.

Quality of finish is not quite Blue Moon, but is very good - at least on par with a Chinese made Prism.  Sail is polyester (I'm guessing around 0.6 oz). My Eyesight is a Chinese framed kite, but I believe the ones available in the US are Skyshark framed.  I replaced the lower spreaders on mine with Skyshark 5PTs.  They are easier to get in and out of the leading edge fittings than the Chinese 'no brand' ones.

The graphic is a "love it or hate it" design.  I don't mind it at all, but a lot of people have said it is the world's ugliest sport kite.  Whatever floats your boat, I guess.

I'm surprised it isn't a more popular kite, I reckon it is great value for money, and I'm keeping mine!

I like the way the Eyesight looks. Definitely different than what's "normal" in trick kite graphics. I've also seen a couple of videos of it and like how it looks tricking too.

Pull the trigger on that deal and get it. If you don't like it, send me an email.

Looks really nice - and so does the flying location.

Let us know what you think of it after you've had a bit of time on the lines

Don't know about the colors, but I like the way this one looks.  How could anyone that grew up with transformers not like it.

Then again, I like kites with faces.

Sweet looking beach. The Eyesight doesn't look bad either and it won't be confused with any other kite. Fly it and enjoy yourself if you like the way it tricks, well ... it'll start looking a lot better to you.

Haha!  :0

Yes, I still have the Shadow - I even had to replace the trailing edge on it once.  And I am up to 7 kites now, but I only fly 4 of them.

I pulled the trigger and this is what it looks like. So far I really
like it, but I'll keep you in mind if things change.
I got to fly KaoS's Eyesight yesterday, and despite appearances it is a really nice kite to fly.
Quite light on the lines and really tricky, i was even able to pull off a couple of sweet 540 flatspins, which arent my strong point, so it gets the thumbs up from me just for that  Smiley

...and i dont mind the look, yours is probably the best ive seen actually, nice colours.
