Thanks to Eddie, I'm getting this cool dragon by GFAK.  I remember seeing it on websites many years ago along with other designs.  I would like to know anything about it as well as what other designs there were.  Pictures would be great too.



Thanks

I think this was a one time platform that GFAK made for presale at KTAI years ago.
I haven't seen but one in a store and one at WSIKF.

I believe in addition to the Joker there is a lion, tiger, the dragon and a wizard -- probably more but can't remember what I saw a few weeks ago in Maine.  I'd gladly trade a joker + for a dragon or wizard  Grin

yep these were the limited edition that were offered in small numbers to specific kite shops....
price was more than 100$.....i want to say that they were 200$......great flyers....
all together i think that there should be 10 different designs....

The joker was made for the KTAI in Vegas....there were a few other big show pieces that GoFly did that year in the gambling theme....dice rok....etc...

I will admit that the platform is great...the rods are good...the only issue i ever saw with these dragons is that Go Fly while they made a bigger showpiece used the same skin material as their other kites....they will and do fade pretty well....but still fly just a bit muted....

I had one customer who bought every single one that came out and flew them weekly at Brenton Point....he would get about a season and a half out of one of them.....

Oh man I am so glad someone finally bought the Joker-- been looking at that thing several times a day since it went on the block.

skb, that Dragon dragon is spectacular!

The joker and card theme was for a KTAI show in Primm, NV just outside Las Vegas.
