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 took the Solus std out yesterday at Comp in Coldwater Michigan... Did a Frenchie in comp.  Was nice to pull it off.  I used 120 foot lines first time this year ...  I also flew the my Solus for the first time in months.  Had to put Wind Flaps on her it was SSSSSssssssoooooooooo windy.  Then in one minute 3 mph ... Extremely lousy wind conditions.  Embarrassed Embarrassed Embarrassed Embarrassed Embarrassed  But with the flaps on and all .. I pulled it off in Comp.

This was today.. Beach was PACKED..( Sunday)..  I used a back up spot.  But wind hit wrong way.  Trees and small hills suck when the wind is wrong direction here.  Heavy then two the left ..the trees block the wind... small hills on the left do a number on wind also ... 

But it's worth watching ...  Cool Cool Cool Cool Cool Cool Cool Cool

Solus takes me there...

Four on the floor

Hey hey.. those new premier straps are actually pretty nice. In all seriousness. I have a set of yours, and a lot of the new premier ones. Joe, take the equalizers off the red and black straps Jon has at the shop, and put them on the premier straps. I have about 8 or 9 sets of those, and they work great.

Also.... I was so confused for a second to see you with a "UL"," then I realized that my UL colors are you standard. Womp.

Keep plugging away. When I come home with chris in a few weeks, if you dont have the trick down, we'll get there early on wednesday night, I'll film, and give some input. Internet input doesn't really do a whole lot of help, haha. I'll bring over the Solus and the WMs so we have the same kites to learn on.

I just got back from the Beach.  Wind was a bit on the high side but not like yesterday... I am now editing video.  I am sure the next post should clear up some of the incidentals carried on by the both of you.   
I got too excited near the end on the four.  I was rapidly losing air as I dropped down.  But maybe all of that is cleared up.  I also did a complete four but no viodeo yesterday. 

No tripod yesterday...

Got editing to do. Why don't the two of you "... just go fly a kite...".  Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

I luv the Straps ... They fit perfectly in my hands ....  Kiss Kiss Kiss Kiss

You say you wasn't awake when you were talking about the Premier Straps?

*aware.

Like the straps joe, I have the same ones in black with blue stitching with black equalizers for my 50 lb sets. Very nice.
