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".

Thinking of a rebuild as original tubes hard to get. Any one know what Miguel has used in the last 8 years?

Ask Miguel, but the standards I've seen were 5PT

Miguel used a few different frames throuh the years and models. Many were straight spars, One option would be the classic P200 leading edges and spine with 5PT Spreaders. But the Wasp LOVES to be flown agressively if I had one today I would want to see how it responded to some Nitro LE 's and Spreaders with a P2X or P300 spine and just slap the heck out of it in that good ol'  Berkeley style.

Alternately ask Brian Champie, Kitefart.com is his site dedicated to the Ca Wasp. I always enjoyed watching Brian work them out.
