Hey Y'all, it's time to let some go. We have twins due in September and not enough house for them and all my hobbies. I guess I'll give priority to the babies. Anyhow, these look like the ones that don't make the cut. 

Prism Tensor 3.1 has been flown once. Has dye marks on the back of the sail, apparently from the lines, but is 100% functional. $250

SOLD Prism Micron 5 Stack x2) As far as I can tell the sails are identical. One set has ripstop tails, the other has plastic tails. $175 each. $300 for the pair

Gomberg Super Sled (Yellow/Black), pennant tail, 2 transition tails, ITW 11' Squid,  200'x200# line and sand anchor, 2 spiral worms. $150

Prism Stylus 2.8) I don't remember if I've ever had this one up in the air. No lines  $75

HQ DeltaHawk, I've not flown this DeltaHawk yet. I was planning on stacking it with the other, but it never happened. No lines. $20 shipped with anything from above. 

 

Non-Smoking home, prices include CONUS shipping. I can take further pictures of anything that you are interested in and may even have time tonight to spread out them out.

Great news!

I was in your neighborhood yesterday & was thinking of you.  The wind was blowing nicely, wondered if you might be out flying.  Good to hear you'll have some flying partners soon.  Of course you'll be a master by the time they can take the lines.  Those are some great kites you are offering.  The Microns are some of my favorites.  The Stylus can be flown & enjoyed by all.  Everyone needs a lifter kite & the Hawk has a reputation all it's own.  But I must say anyone interested in flying a full on power kite should seriously consider the Tensor 3.1 if they are looking into heading in that direction.  It is highly recommended as the proper size to learn static flying with before going on to larger sails for traction type flying. Then the 3 meter size is still a good kite for higher wind days to pull your buggy or board.  It is an easy kite to fly & will definitely get your attention.  The Prism Tensor quality is very good & the kite bag is a great item on it's own.

Best wishes from our family to yours, SHBKF

Pretty sure you can add more photos in replies? Or just downsize the pics a bit, that should help both of us. ;)

I wish iPhone had a native way to reduce resolution. I've not found a simple editor I like yet.

Hey JJ,

Congratulations ! I wish you all the energy in the world, you'll need it ! I've done a lot of cool, fun things in my life, but nothing compares to having kids. Best things ever (thing 1, thing 2, thing 3) ! But I am sure  glad mine didn't all come at the same time... good luck. :rolleyes:

I would like to hear a little more about your Super Sled, size of the tails especially... I'm a big fan of the Sled design, they work really well. I am surprised that they sent you 200# line for it, I've had a smaller Sled break heavier line... but the tails is what really makes it special. I assume the colors are all matching ?

Thanks !

Yeah, it's all black and yellow. Half way down the linked page there is a pic of purple, red, and yellow sleds with pennant tails. That's what my yellow one looks like. The transition tails are 24' that I flew as laundry up close to the top.

On your PC, Microsoft Office Picture Manager, if you have the Office Suite. Simple and fast, save as duplicate, post as photo not as link, delete from PC.

Congrats on the twins -- they will be keeping you busy for a while!

Thanks to all for the well wishes. I'm going to take these off the market for now. They may come back at another time, more organized, with better pics.

Oh MY!! I finally got to pick these up and look at them. I must say, these are still crispy!!! One set came with a bit of sand. I got a good laugh over that. 

Pleasure doing business with you again. 

Thanks!!!

Good luck with the little ones!!! I'm sure you'll have a great time raising them. Kids are a blast!!

Thanks again!!

      Hi all
      Looking for a Prism 4D in the older 'yellow' colour in good condition. As I'm UK-based, ideally one in Europe, to avoid high shipping costs and custom charges, but will consider US-based as well if the price is right. 
       
      Cheers, Lex

      I'm needing to part a kite or two.  Up first is a like new Prism 4D in with the purple accents.  Kite has a total of about 15 minutes flight time on it.  I just never clicked with it like I thought I might.  Comes with case, line set, handles, storage strap, manual and tag still attached to case.  Asking $75 shipping included to anywhere in U.S.

      Here is my Karma Pay It Forward giveaway.
      $50 The Kite Shoppe gift certificate
      - or -
      Brand new Prism Synapse 1.4m parafoil.
       
      I’m new to kiting so kite will ship to you from Amazon.
      Please post “I’m in” to be entered into the drawing.
      Winner will be chosen on June 14.  Winner will pick which of the two prizes they prefer.
      Brian Bland
      ==
      Some rules and guidelines:
      Don’t play unless you’re willing to put up a prize and ship it to whoever wins.
      Shipping is paid by the original poster, the winner pays nothing. Be prepared to ship your prize anywhere in the lower 48 US States. Sorry, but due to shipping costs, we really have to limit this to the lower 48 US States.
      RULE CHANGE (7/31/2014): Members from Canada, Alaska, and Hawaii are welcome to enter the Karma drawings provided they are willing to pay half of the Karma prize shipping cost. The method and timing of the payment will be agreed upon between the two parties after the drawing for a particular prize.
       You can choose the length of the giveaway, but keep it between 1 and 2 weeks.
      Try to ship the prize promptly. You should be able to ship it within a week, but if you can’t, PM the winner and let them know. Sometimes life gets in the way! This whole thing works on the honor system so if there are any problems shipping or receiving a prize, it needs to be worked out between the two parties. Don’t forget…Karma!
       This isn’t a competition, but feel free to be generous! If you can only put up a hat, or a tail for a stunt kite, great! If you have something in your kite bag that you never fly and would be willing to ship, that’s great too. Either way, the people that join to win it will appreciate it.
      When you receive your prize, post a thank you to the thread where you won it.
      The thread will be locked after that point so the new **KARMA** stays above it.
      KiteLife is not responsible for exchanges of information and interactions between members, please be kind and treat it like any classifieds or online transaction.
      Good luck, and have fun!
