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".

Good looking quad!
Do we know if they will be sold through Kites and Fun Things as Jon was involved?

No mesh is the perfect amount. Seems to handle well. Looks promising. I may need a "This End Up" arrow on it initially, but I could get used to it.

Me too, looks ace!

I had a Rev years ago (20 maybe, wow that is a while!) and haven't flown a quad since. This looks fantastic.
Is it dumb to ask if anyone has an idea on pricing?

Hope they are OK to ship globally Smiley

For many years there has been a flat designed quad line and also many three dimensional designed quads as well.......Carl has a masterpiece rev series and has been flying any type of kite for a long time and so it makes me smile to see someone of his caliber come out with a non flat quad....

Looks to be a very nice flying kite........

found this sneak peek as well from Bondi Beach: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ieeoc05jzxw

If that one is a standard size version, will there be a smaller size version, too?     (similar to B1.5 VS B2)

So maybe North American production is in the initial testing phases.  Smiley Smiley Smiley Smiley Smiley Smiley
