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.

Any tips for tuning these? Can the bridle be adjusted? Are the wood beads on the longitudinal spine for different tension at higher windspeeds?

higher wind kite anymore, lots of weight there...
high tension skin
if i remember the beads are for when the skin stretches lengthwise.

Other snowflakes have some ability of tuning at the attachment point of the line, there might be a series of knots you can move the pigtail to and then attach your flying line.

Kites kayaks & corgis again!!!

On mine, the bridle line on the spine has three loops tied at the end. The angle of attack can be adjusted by changing which loop you attach the clip from the other bridle lines.
Yes, the beads are used to tension the skin.
