Wood frames, or fiberglass, or carbon?

How many kites in the stack?

Are these Hyper Pluses, Hyper Cruisers, or... ?

I've got an old 12-stack of carbon framed Hyper Pluses myself, got it from Randy back in '93. ;)

I HAVE 3 KITES TOTAL.

A 1 STACK AND A 2 STACK

THEY ALL HAVE WOOD FRAMES.

THE 1 STACK IS A LITTLE OLDER (I GOT IT FIRST)

THE 2 STACK LOOKS A LITTLE NEWER (THE NYLON COLORS ARE BRIGHTER)

I HAVE THE ORIGINAL HYPERKITES INSTRUCTIONS AND LINES.

IM NOT SURE WHAT MODEL THESE ARE???

THEY ARE 33'' LONG , TIP TO TIP ON THE BOTTOM

AND JUST OVER 14'' TALL

THE TAIL IS SUPPER LONG APROX 40'

A DELTA OR TRIANGLE SHAPE

ANY INFO OR HELP YOU COULD GIVE ME WOULD BE GREAT

CAN'T REMEMBER WHERE I GOT EM

I GREW UP IN THE BAY AREA SO IT WAS A KITE SHOP IN BERKELEY OR IN THE CITY (S.F.)

THEY LOOK LIKE THESE IN THIS PICTURE

BUT THEY HAVE WOOD FRAMES

Here are a couple of places you might be able to sell them...

GWTW Swap Meet

GWTW Swap Meet Readme

http://www.gwtwforum.com/index.php?board=27.0

Or...

http://www.kite-classifieds.com

Those are more likely to generate educated interest than eBay or Craigslist, since you'll be showing the kites to fliers. :(

The kites in the picture are of my original 6-stack of HyperKites. I bought them about 10 years ago in Atlantic Beach, NC. The condo in the background is one where we have a timeshare.

These particular HyperKites have carbon fiber frames. I've since grown the stack to a 9-stack.
