Revised list of kites for sale (originally over 2 dozen)

Recommended Posts

Helping my dad sell kites to reduce his collection. Most are new or nearly new.

This is the revised list after several were sold. Most are not priced but will work on any you are interested in. Shipping is extra. The Prism Nexus is $180 (pictured). 

If there are typos in my table below,  the photos of the original hand-written list are correct. (see original posting by searching "2 dozen")

(Note: several people have reported they are very happy with what I sold them over the last month since the original post. If there is a problem I will fix it.)

Edmond, I'm sorry I missed this comment. I was busy over the holidays and just getting back to selling the kites. The train has a waiting list of 2 people.  I'm asking $180 for the train, plus shipping.

The "no-name" kites are pending sale.

Thank you for your interest, Preacher. It is never too late to start. My dad and mom took them up in their 60s and flew them into their 80's. Dad still flies some. These kites are from their collection.

I am going on a vacation trip in a couple days and will be back on February 5. I will update where the list stands when I get back. I've had a busy January. The Rev is still for sale - the person buying it seems to have evaporated.

Hi Deb, are any of the Quantums still available?  If they are could you tell me which colors you still have, how much wear is on them, and what they cost?  I'm very new to this, but looking forward to moving up from our low-end starter kites.

OK I'm back to work on selling the kites. The only kites sold so far in the original list are the two Styluses and the Prism Flashback. Pending sales are the 3 no-name kites; other sales I may have mentioned above have fallen through. I will message those folks who were waiting for pending sales since they are "next in line". Thank you for your patience.

Hi Deb, 

I ended up purchasing a Quantum, and have a 4-D on the way.  Shhhh, don't tell my husband that I am now inquiring about your purple and green Prism Stylus;)  I think it could be great fun for our 13 y/o twins without having to worry about breaking anything if they crash.  I've been considering a Prism Synapse for them, so this could make for a great gift for them instead. What kind of condition is it in and does it come with lines? Could you please tell me how much you are asking?  Thanks so much:)

Sorry, Twin Roses, the Styluses are sold. They would be a great choice for the twins, like you said.

The Nexus stack is sold and my dad decided to keep the other one for now. 

The 3 "no-name" kites are also sold.

Someone is interested in the 2 Quantums still available. Here are pictures to show the colors in case nothing comes of it.

The Dodd Gross Dynamite seems to have disintegrating fabric so is no longer for sale. I'd send it somewhere for the cost of shipping, but I don't know that it is a good bet for the buyer.

I'll take it. Fix it ,vent it and see if it'll fly in 40 mph like we had yesterday.It would be a great learning project. Let me know the cost of shipping.

@Contactmic: Rev is still for sale. It includes lines/handles, is $70. It turns out the Rev is a 1.5 SLE.

The Dodd Gross Dynamite was sold for the price of shipping due to disintegrating fabric.

The Griffin Kite is pending sale.

Agh, shouldn't have spent time time in chat and Breezin beat me to the reply. 

I kept looking at the list but the Rev 1 is so large with few replaceable parts.  On the other hand, a 1.5 is a great deal even with the SLE.

But Breezin, I think contactmic should be getting in first on a potential bidding war since he was the one asking about the update.

      Hey all,  
      Anyone know of a good flight field in the Chincoteague VA area?  (town of not just National Park)  I am headed there with friends the first weekend of June and can't resist coastal winds, which even my non-kiting friends know about me by now.  Any advice on area fields for flight would be great.  I am a little worried that the wild pony situation may = a no kites policy in some areas, but have not managed to find references to kites on any of the area web pages that I have read so far (including NPS ones)   I don't want to be scaring ponies and making people mad.
       
      And, I gotta ask - Anyone fly quad around Chincoteague and want to fly with me for a couple of hours????  Can't ignore my friends for long, but we could amaze them nicely for a little while.

      Join us for two very full days of quad instruction on the beautiful shores of St Annes Beach in Lytham St Annes U.K. on Aug 30-31, 2018 immediately before the St Annes International Kite Festival!
      Instructors will be John Barresi (www.johnbarresi.com) and Josh Mitcheson.


      DAY ONE - AUG 30
      Quad 101: We'll be covering everything from absolute basics (pure beginner) all the way up through advanced techniques as well as the "weird stuff" like dogstake, short line catch and throw or any other quad line flight styles that may be of interest to the students, this first day is primarily focused on a full range of individual skills.

      DAY TWO - AUG 31
      Team Flying: Actually easier than it looks, team flying is proven to help your skills along much quicker while having a ton of fun at the same time in a very forgiving social environment - after having done 100+ clinics, it's very very rare that fliers didn't find a fair measure of success on the line with others - come on, pave the way for participating in a mega fly at your next event.

      ==

      Ideal choice of equipment for this class is any model of Djinn, Revolution 1.5 (includes EXP, SLE, B-Series, printed specials, etc) or similar "1.5 platform" models (like Phoenix, Freilein, Polo, etc), designs like Fulcrum are also welcome - we'll go through painless equipment set up, good tuning and all aspects of flight - this clinic is not brand-centric, the goal here is to demystify quad flying and set you up to win at your own game.

      If you want to be able to try team flying, 40 metre / 120 ft lines (Spectra or Skybond material) are strongly suggested as the international team standard.

      Registration is $135 (approx £100) per person and includes full access to the clinic on both days (Thu 10a-4p / Fri 10a-3p)... Please note, there are ONLY 20 SPOTS available and we expect them to fill up very quickly.
      RSVP'd:
      @Flintfootfilly (Sarah) @FlyingHigh (Gavin) @Simon Cooper @Steve SLF Caroline S. @Neil Lover @GRAHAM MARSHALL @Ferrit (Peter) @Mickp14 (Mick) @Stephen Sunderland @JWharton ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? If you're coming, we start the "Quad 101" portion of this class at 10AM SHARP on Thursday morning... It's jam packed with invaluable information and first time attendees are encouraged to consider attendance mandatory, lots of little details that add dimension to your set up and flight experience.

      There will also be an add on indoor clinic on Wednesday Aug 29 from 4:30p to 9:30p, registration is $30 (15 spaces available) and covers 5 HOURS of indoor access and instruction.

      If you want some homework, you might also check out the tutorials available on KiteLife at http://learnkites.com/ and Kite Forge at http://kiteforge.com/help, can’t be too prepared!

      I recently finished my first kite build, and I wanted to throw a public "Thank You!!" out to my kite making mentor:  Elliot Shook, who allowed me to follow in his design footsteps, gave me guidance, techniques and encouragement.  Without Elliot's generous mentorship this kite would likely still be flying only in my imagination.   Holding my kite up to Elliot's work I still have a bit of fine tuning to do, but hey I still need an xtra vent, so I will get better.  Elliot's eye for detail and build quality is definitely masterpiece material.  
      I finished it just in time to take it to JB's OBX quad clinic and got to show it off to Elliot and all my best flying buddies.  When the wind let up a bit (should have made an xtra vent for that weekend!!) I got to put it up with the sun behind it and it sparkled in the sun beautifully, and seemed to fly just fine.  Nothing like seeing your own work flying and keeping up with the others in the sky.   it flew just like a Shook should fly: smooth and un-phased by the bumps, in higher winds than I should have put it up in, and pretty as a can be. 
      Also, Thank you to all of the folks who have pulled out kites to let me examine and photograph them, lent me your sails, and answered my questions about sewing and techniques - many of you were generous with your time and knowledge.  The generosity of this community never fails to warm my heart and add lift to my efforts.  To anyone thinking about taking the sewing plunge....I encourage it.  I learned a ton, and kite making materials are not forgiving, so give yourself plenty of practice scraps and time.  Oh the joy of flying a kite I built can not be described adequately. 
      Thanks Again Elliot!
