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.

Nice video and cool kite.
I like the vented eyes. Based on a resent post, many other forum members don't.

nice! love the kite.  Really short lines, would you say that it is easier or harder to fly on short lines than say 90' or 120'

Nice!!!

I tried Rev whenever I had a chance...basically flying other people's kites Cheesy.  My Rev flying skill is pretty much from my 4-line power kite experience.  I can keep the kite in the sky and flying around but nothing like the control you have.  It looks easy though.  How long would it take to be that good?

I think I will be looking for a Rev soon.  It will have to be framed with race rods for the wind condition here in Seattle.  The sail will have to be really pretty.  The cost will have to fit my kite budget as I am mostly a two line trick kite kind of a guy.  It is very difficult to make all that work...  Sad...

Many thanks for all your comments and feedback guys. It's much appreciated!  Smiley

Hi Bill – Longer lines give you much more time to react but……. I only ever fly on really short lines these days for two reasons. Firstly, I feel it’s easier to control the kite and do the ‘throw and catch’ tricks on short lines. Secondly, I can fly in much smaller places.


Nice video and cool kite.
I like the vented eyes. Based on a resent post, many other forum members don't.


I love the vented Ninja Eyes Rev. Mine is equipped with green race rods (watch how they flex after the first catch). It’s my favourite Rev.

How long would it take to be that good?

Thank you! Others are much better than me. I have been flying Revs for many years but you can pick up the basics and move on very quickly, especially if you watch some of the training videos on the web.
