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".

Some things to do: sew the patch for the upperspreader and make a new weigth (to include the added 3 grams).

What type of weight system do you use Krijn?  I would be interested to see how you make them.  Also what was the final weight that you used on this particular build.  Did it differ from previous builds?  I assumed 25g was required for the STD.

For kites with a velcro at the tail I always use some lead from the tackle shop and make a velcro pocket for it. I use a hammer to flatten the weigths if needed.
Just like the Benson Deepspace.

I think in Kirby's Sixth Sense is 27 or 28 grams now. But it flies just like mine, which I really like (I didn't built it myself [Sugarbaker did]).

Didn't mean to hijack this thread. Since my Magnet sail is crafted by Krijn. I just post 2 pic.
I frame it light and make an easy convertible bridle 3pt or reverse turbo. Also some pigtails to tune and play around.. Wink

Thanks guys, I'm happy with how the sail turn out.
Special Thanks to Krijn for the sail and also David Ruger for making it possible.

Didn't get to fly yet, started to rain after the photo was taken. Can wait to put it through its paces.. and see how it perform since its had lots of good review.

They made it across the pond!

Sixth Sense is great!
the Magnet is fast, small and nimble. I will have to try it in some smoother air as it was pretty gusty.
They are going to be very fun!

Thanks a bunch Krijn!
