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".

They replace yoyo stoppers giving you significantly more area to catch the lines.  They are also very low profile.  They work VERY well for single and multiple yoyos.   
 
This shot is clipped - but there are 3 more claws that you can't see lower down. This is the second version of them which are nice and smooth on the ends.  The first ones looked a bit sharp.  Great for a hot tricks 'he did 3 wraps, I better do 4' type situation.

Yeah, not APAs.  Within the last year, he has started producing his own designs for yoyo stoppers, connectors, center Ts, perhaps other items.  Before that he used APAs.

These seem stronger, a bit more rigid, and grip better.   I like the lower connectors and centerT especially.  I think that they are available at a few kite shops or you could contact him directly if you are interested in trying them.

Yeah, he rounded them off from the previous version based on flyer feedback.  The previous ones were indeed quite sharp, these are blunt - no chance of sail damage.

On the bag,

He told me he found some fabric that he liked on his last trip, I think this is it.  I have no idea what the letters signify, but it's cool- I like it.
