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".

Not sure what it is, but that's the first vid since the first Niv video that's made me want to buy a kite.  Even if it is very un-Robertshaw-like ugly.

I've been flying longer than that kid has been alive.   Cry

As with so many Robertshaw releases, I am tempted  Wink But even with an explanation from His Carlness himself I'm scratching my head over the price. 265 (~$375 at the moment) is a shedload of money for any kite but when it also represents a premium over KiteStudio's other fully Aerostuffed kites..... Huh

The video is entertaining rather than informative. We all know Chris can do this stuff but I'd like to see something a bit more conventional before I consider whipping out the credit card.

It's no beauty either but if I did buy one I'd see what I could do about that  Grin

If I owned one I'd be tempted to test 5PT and 7PT as lower spreaders, simply because they seem more able to take input-abuse than Aerostuff (and are cheaper).

Can't wait to try the beast though!
