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.

Are there any of you flyers of these beautiful giants out there ?
I was wondering if any of you find any prpblems with the the way the front / top of the cells sort of pucker in and down along the leading edge when it flies.
Anyone have any problems or suggestions when flying them like min / max wind speed limits. 
Personally I love the way they look in the sky and think they have a real distinct presence in the sky.
Please share your experiences.
Thanks in advance.

I saw a picture very recently that shows that Mike Dallmer has one.   Might want to shoot him an email?  Sort of close to you.. I can give you his email offline if you message me.
