Welcome to the GWTW Forum.
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".

Which brings me to Wagsboyz Mamba loan offer. I took a double take on that post. I guess I've never had anyone willing to loan their kite. I'd love to take you up on it. However, winds around here right now are slow to say the least. Can I take a raincheck on that for September or October? I think it's cool you're willing to do that.

Just PM me when your ready.  It's all good!

Since it's not made anymore it will probably get more expensive as time goes on.

That sometimes happens with rare kites or kites that have some mystical aura of popularity (Prism Vapor), but a kite like the Mamba was made in relatively large numbers and isn't in high demand. Because they are very good kites and very well made, they haven't plummeted in value like some lesser kites, but they're not likely to become fetish objects like the Vapor and demand ever higher prices.

Allen what would you pay for an AzizA now.... Or a pristine Betancourt?

You big tease thief!  For penance, send those kites to me for extensive testing.  Cool

Well, AzizA's are rare, at least on this side of the pond. But there is no demand to drive up the price.

Prices on Betancourt kites bottomed out a few years ago. No demand. The collector status waned as everyone who wanted nice ones has them. There is very little demand from actual flyers because PBSKs are so far removed from how most people like kites to behave. Nowadays nice PBSKs go unsold for months until the right sucker buyer comes along.

I'm often the "buyer", but I haven't paid a lot for a PBSK in many years.
