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".

Oh wow,  I have a pair of those and didn't even know it.  Steve sent them to me when he was out of some other straps.  They are awesome!  Joe,  you *do* want these!



Edit to clarify: mine are the wrist straps

These are my 3 finger straps, and very nice they are. I don't know what sort of webbing Norm uses but they are very soft with lots of adjustment and very nice stitching. Worth tracking down if you can.

It takes practice ...95 degrees out .... I like the heat ....  "...Oh, Joemy poor arthritic hands..."   :'( :'( :'( :'(  Not going to work Norm ( but nice try  Wink )

Just when I go for altitude I remembered what you said.  Go up high.  I then went upstairs...

I've been trying to get 4 clean AVFFF since the challenge was laid down... Joe, you're closer than me. I just wanted to see if I could do that many in a row, and it's tough. Put a regular FF in between, makes it a lot easier. That's not the challenge, I know...
And anyone that can do this on inland winds, my hat's off to you !

Summer's my off season. I haven't had a good fly since the beginning of May.  I stay away from the beach, and haven't seen any good inland wind yet. I got 2 or 3 AVFFF in a row, but inland wind is brutal to achieve any kind of control in. I'll be back out there after Labor Day, though !
