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".

I ran across this review the other day.

http://v2.1.kiteclique.com/wordpress-3.0/wordpress/uncategorized/level-one-kites-black-pearl-ul-review

Mmmmm........I can't wait to get my hands on one of these.

If anyone is thinking of ordering, let me know - we can potentially double-up and save on shipping which I've heard is very steep to the US.

Might be worth checking with Fraser if the demo kites are for sale after the tour.

The BP (Pro & UL) are hovering there at or near the top of my next kite list.  Pity I'm in the UK.

Hi Tom,

here's the answer to your Q:
Quote
What is the difference between the BP and the BP Pro?

The BP Pro is a more precise SkyShark version of the BP standard.

Specifications for the BP Pro:
Spine: P3X
Lower spreaders: Black Diamond Nitros
Leading edge: 3pt/3pt
Slightly different stand-off positions and a modified bridle.

HTH.  Smiley

Thanks! Smiley

Looks like the Pro is the way to go for those in the US, since SkyShark is easy to get here.

Well, 6mm carbon shouldn't be hard to get either ...

I personally like one piece leading edges, any ferrule is a weak spot. Might be just my flying or the irish wind conditions  Roll Eyes

True.

Once I heard that it was 3 pt I was sold.  My 3 most favorite kites are all framed in 3pt - I'm beginning to think that it's no coincidence!  Smiley
