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".

That looks like a Betancourt design towards the end of his last go-round. Don't remember the name. I think the godfather has one though. With fuzzy dice or something on it.

Ouch.

This from the man who has gone through 9 Nirvanas and trashed

the frame of his current R-Sky. You are so rough on kites.



Glad you can take a kidding.

Were you referring to my MoXie?
I'm guessing that kite is much older than the Betancourt MoXie era.
Mike MacDonald probably has a stack of whatever they are.  Smiley

Perhaps a Shanti kite then? It's familiar.

Ooohh, Shanti.

That does sound possible.

How long have you been in kiting anyway?

I've only been doing this a dozen years.   Smiley

Thank you very much my friends.

The Maestro seems to be a rare and little-known TOTL model.

Does it flies like the MEFM ?

I think it broke cover in 1996 and wasn't again seen after that. And I don't recall seeing anything other than that one colour scheme.

We'll leave that for you to tell us  Wink but it had the adjustability and high tweak potential of the MEFM.
