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".

Had a chance to test fly the Black Pearl Standard at Kite Hill Tom is demoing.  I always liked BPs simple yet striking panel layout and never thought I would have a chance to land my hands on one of these.  It is a wonderful trick kite and allowed me to trick everything I know of with my sloppy inputs.  Tom was even kind enough to film my flying with my new Iphone4S.  The flying experience is definitely one of the best Christmas gifts I had.  Many thanks to Tom and everyone else who got the kite in the US.  I am thinking of getting one...Wink pending on the approval of my finance department Wink An orange BP UL would be perfect for painting our Seattle gray sky.

Happy Holidays!!!  D

Is the black pearl available somewhere in the U.S.? or are people purchasing them and having them shipped?  Just curious...

No where in the US, sadly, but I noticed that a certain kite shop in Ireland was recently offering them with a discount and free shipping which takes the sting out of overseas buying.

I've had the pleasure of flying a bp ul and thought it was very capable and fun to fly.
