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".

Hey BobD...
I used to think the Exile was the kite that gave away the tricks, especially compared to the QPros that I had. Then I flew the Sea Devil, and that has been one of my goto kites for a couple years. It still is, but I'm moving over to the Fearless line, now. Another kite that is worth noting is the Four Winds Designs Nebula. It really gives up the tricks, and is very tollerent of sloppy inputs.
If I ever get over to LSP to fly with you guys, you are welcome to try these out.
By the way, I still fly my Exile UL on a regular basis. There's something to it that I haven't seen in any other kites, yet.

Just to elaborate a little: The Exile is very nice indeed. It is smooth, and a nice flying kite. But it is also a bit slowly reacting compared to a Qpro or a Nirvana. Less direct. It is better in low winds but worse in higher. The Qpro is a better/quicker pitcher than the Nirvana, and for sure much better for tight turns. The Nirvana is a better spinner, and a dream for Taz machines and JL's.  Just my humble opinion ;-)
