  2. Hi All, I have a Hawaiian Team Kite from Top Of The Line. I probably bought it back in the late 80's/early 90's perhaps (it is not the revamped Spinoff). I know they're no longer around and I'm looking to sell it. No tears, original sleeve, etc. Anyone have a sense as to what a fair value might be? TIA.

  7. Speaking of Widows Dropped my straps next to this hole in August. After resetting kite came back and reached for them. Few inches away saw some movement in the hole. She'd popped out to protect her egg sack. SOB moment for sure. No rattlesnakes in the flying field this year but 2 of those rotten girls. Probably be some Jack rabbit sneak attack that doesn't like kites that'll do me in though. If you get bit by a Widow Maker Pro it won't hurt.Doubt you'll even feel a little sick. I'm on my 2nd set of lower APA connectors. Lines keep cutting them (it's me) and this set is about done. Cheap easy fix but it is a pain. Even though I had a Widow Maker and 2 Lam kites for along time the Hydra/Zephyr was my most flown combo. Having the Echo/Zephyr combo I think you can become a good low wind flyer a lot faster than me. The only kite I've found like the Echo that could take the bumps around here is the VIP II Gravity Performance.
  8. That looks like a decent deal. The sails weren't sewn by the same team as Lam kites. The original sails were sewn by Pam Kirk (sp?) who has passed away. This looks like an original. Steve Tapp, who made the sails for the WidowMaker Pro has also passed away. That's why I would say to jump on the chance to buy either, there won't be any more.
  9. you might be able to work around shipping from Germany? found this on a German forum: https://www.drachenforum.net/boerse/index.php/Entry/6265-Widowmaker-Std/
  10. thanks Rob i'll figure out how to post adverts and start looking for a WM. as for the Ticca i think i'll wait on the reviews before i pull the trigger...even then it comes down to Breezin's original question...is the Ticca that much different from a Mongoose? with 6 months and 10 kites into this hoby i have nothing to be ashamed of in terms of excess...just need to be a little more picky, hence the WM. bob

  12. Thanks, I think this one will generate more interest.
  13. It is always slow in the winter. In years past John has suspended Karma drawings a few months then brought them back. You really do an excellent job on the bags. I really like the one you had in Lincoln City. It is Unique, I recognized your bag before you in the crowd the second day. Good luck.
  14. I would pay up to ~$200 for a used WidowMaker in decent shape. They were $300 new, when you could buy them. I bought the last new Widow Maker I found, but that was a few years ago. The video was made with my first WidowMaker, and I have another with a different design. The new one is still unflown, but only because I haven't had a lot of flying time lately. It has been moved to my car bag, waiting for the next chance to fly. The 'Electric Spider' needs APAs, so it's on the repair pile. I haven't been disappointed with any of the SkyBurner kites I have, and I'm sure the Tica2020 won't disappoint, either. The WM is a kite to have, but you can order a new Tica right now, it looks like. At least on one site there's a price and an order button. Well, I'm sure by the time I'm done playing with colors, they'll be ready to order !
  15. Since this drawing was a bust, and community opinions suggest that I should offer something more substantial...I'll offer up the 2nd burrito kite bag I made ....40" allowing it to be used for DLK as well as quads. This drawing is for the black bag with the black & white pin striping referenced in the attached thread . This should create a lot more interest in this karma drawing Drawing to be held Sunday 11/17
  16. @ Breezin yeah that totally makes sense...life is good... the wind?...not so much here about 2-3 with gusts to 6 that just goes to show i needed that Echo. even got it do a few axels, slides and turtles yesterday while nothing else would stay up. usually after an hour or so on the echo i can get the Zephyr up and then ease into the E3 or Hydra. youre lucky to have your flying field at home, my closest is about 20 minutes away - got the echo all asembled in the back seat of the truck with 80' of 50lb attached - could be flying in about 21 minutes lol...yeah, life is good. thanks for the reply, Breezin, always appreciated, @RobB nice flying Rob thats just how i fly (but without the tricks, lol) your style plus the music you add is just right...so many trick videos look like flying on two pots of coffee or worse, no disrespect to anyone meant, just a diferent style. thanks for the advice on the Widow Maker. would there be any unsold ones in stock anywhere? whats the going price? thanks much appreciated bob
  17. Yes it does!! And Thank you riff!! I'm a crappy pic taker, so please excuse a lack of them. If I use it around my team, I'll get someone to snap some and post to FB. Then I'll try importing them over here. Again - Thanks!!
  18. Post a wanted add here and on the Facebook marketplaces. I am sure you will find an original WidowMaker that needs a new home. I end up laughing while flying, you just can't upset the kite. I took this video at least 8 years ago, as you can see, the kite just lets it rip... 75' lines, light winds.
  19. This Kite has a new home on the West Coast.

    Photos of my home made kites and accessories. Many made from Gomberg Kite tails.
  21. Hadn't taken the time to snap a photo of the kites I carry in my bag in a while.
  22. Well see if this makes sense. If in the Aleutian Islands it'd be the Mind Trick vented. Canary Islands the Tekken sul. Gili Motang some kite I could weaponize. There be dragons on that island. Even though I choose the Lams over the Widow Maker Pro the WMP is the funner kite. Biggest issue I have with it is staying level headed in the 15 to 20 mph range. Kite gets a verve in it and I start doing higher risk stuff like on a 3/4 kite. Kite gets these whee moments that is fun, fun, fun. Sadly the last sailmaker(Steve Tapp) that Skyburner used for the WMP died way to young in Nov. 2017. Hopefully they'll find another but Steve and Heads Up set the bar really high for those kites. My Lam suls have eyes. Look at them to long and they get very judgemental. On a off day they seem to have a look of disdain about them. When I'm on no atta boys from them. Just a resounding next please. When timing is on trick after trick keeps coming. The WMP has a elegance in flight that I really enjoy. Mongoose has a silky feel. It's glides and slides are really different. Very enjoyable for more studious type flying. Fun kite to just watch and feel fly. Lams are always on the hunt for the next move. They demand I get better. Since I fly to trick the Lams get a 10. WMP and Mongoose 9. Hydra gets a 8. It'd get a 9 if it were more durable. Took this advice from many people from around the world. Don't get kites that have the same characteristics. Variety is the spice. Figure out how you fly and what you want to accomplish. Then get as many kites as ya can LOL. Do have a lot on my mind. Worrying about when my Superfly will get here. Trying to NOT buy that Stranger Level 7. What the winds will be like from day to day. Will snotty Jubilee (alpaca) spit on me AGAIN today. Sigh. Life is good!!
  23. It was brought to my attention that I should mention how these kites were stored. I was told to store all of our kites assembled “leading edges connected” un-tensioned in a cool dark area of the house like a closet. They have been stood up in a corner stored this way the entire time I’ve owned them. Thank you.
