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".

You can buy a lot of varnish for the price difference though. Wink

There's been a lot written about AS in the past. Ron G. was our local authority.

The main performance impression I get is the springiness, or return to center performance. Not necessarily stiffer, but quicker to snap back after a load. Makes sense as a desirable characteristic on some kites.

That's one of the things that makes Skyshark tapered and straight sticks feel so different on some kites.
