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 job on the tails, zero1199.  Hope to see them in person sometime soon. 

Did you get the Rok in the air?  Need to see some pix of that too . . .

Was the black conyne a custom build?

I am pretty sure it was a custom.  I got the kite from an estate and there were quite a few custom Sun Oaks in the collection, and some of them unflown.  Zero1199 got it and has done a really nice job with the tails.

I can't wait to see it in person.

That would be me, and I have flown it once - let's see if I can get a picture up. It had a tendency to heel over to the left, and I didn't have time to do any tuning.



Incidentally, how does one pronounce "Conyne"?
