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".

Prism Eclipse

Pretty sweet kite - a guy had one at kite hill yesterday and Reggie was flying it.  I was impressed with its capabilities.  Nice looking too!

I liked the Spectra Sports Edge quite a lot, although I haven't flown one in a number of years.  Like many others my Team Hawiians (2 flown stacked) still get air time.

Yeah, I had a list of kites.. but they aren't really old school. The Gem, Matrix Etc..

The OP did stipulate as late as 2000 though.

I'd second the Reactor out of the ones mentioned so far.
