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".

Hi all, I was wondering if any of you nice people could help me identify this kite.
This kite is one of a batch I bought that included a rev, 2 flexifoil stacker 8's, an Elliot LaLuna, a 9 foot spectra star, a premier something or other, an un flown 6 pack of trlby's and a handful of gomberg and premier single liners. The Kite measures approx 7 foot wingtip to wingtip and 35 inches high, beman carbon light 14 spars and icarex fabric. The only identifying mark anywhere on the kite is a tiny mark by the trailing end of the spine "CS" with the tail of the s underlining the c. Having turned out to be one of my favorite kites of the bunch, I'd appreciate somehelp id'ing it.

That's the 3/4 version of the Skyburner Pro Dancer. I have one and can never remember the actual name Jon gave it. I hope somebody can come up with it so I can write it down. A call to Jon and Marieanne would probably get it.

Mine was named "Bob" by the daughters boyfriend, afraid that has blocked my recollection. It is a fun kite, I should break mine out again.

Thanks Sam,  I knew it had something to do with the night sky but could never sy for sure if it was star or moon or even if dancer was included, a lot of years ago, maybe 1991 or 92? I need to go tag that bag.
