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".

Now I want one more than ever. I like to fly small input spinny kites like PBSKs, but that's not found in most other kites. Especially not in a full size sail. I fly a lot more that I trick, so handling is important.

Maybe not quite *that* spinny but think something like a Mamba rather than the bigger, slower turns you'd expect from some polyvalent kites over the past few years. Like Ken has said a few times, he designed this for how he likes to fly not whats flavour of the month.
