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".

The black and white is a bit too stark for me..... red/black or warbird colors would probably work. From just the silhouette, it has a kind of down to business, oil on hot metal appeal.

Of course, the aesthetics of razorbacks like so much else is in the eye of the beholder....

So these things could kill someone, considering the shape, speed and weight.

It's like taking a Top Fuel Dragster to the local park.

Granted, I would like to fly one sometime, just someone else's.  Huh

Here is mine...
 
The Razorback was a slow Team kite with little pull for low winds. Built by Julian Wolfe Patrick from Wolfe Design France.
 
The new Level One Razorback is a speed and power kite for high winds...  Wink

Yeah, I'm not a fan of these things at all ... a couple of irresponsible jackass's could get kites banned from parks/beaches.
