Guests (non-registered users) can view the forum but are unable to post.  If you don't have anything to say then why would you bother to register?
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.
There are several more benefits to being a registered user, but you'll have to join our little community to find out all the "secrets".

Are these in current production or a 'blast from the past'?

VERY cool kites..............

I did a Google search and it does appear that the kite is still available!

Yes, I was only teasing  Cheesy

However, would there be any sort of trick that could be done with a stack? And that could not be done otherwise?
Has anyone really thought about this?
Perhaps you could create a whole new discipline (and dimension) to freestyle!  Smiley

Cheers!

Yep.  Dick Barnes had a large stack of his small "Pizzazz" kites ("Razzamatazz"??... can't remember) - maybe 7 kites.  He had a number of us axelling them at the 2002 Whidbey Island Festival.  Huge fun!
