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".

Nice display!

Tell me about the octopus. Looks like the 15m/49' length. Brand? No lifter needed?
All the ghost deltas look great together!

Lots of folks fly Rev, but I much prefer Lams ABS to them.

Definitely try before you buy, and get some advice for which is the best all-around for your area. Although most people start with a standard sail, if prevalent winds in your area are on the strong side, you may consider a vented kite to start with. A standard sail is the right one 90 percent of the time, and will cover winds from 4 to 12-ish miles per hour, depending on how choppy or gusty it is. Visit a kite shop in your region and they will assist you with choosing the right kite. As far as choices other than the amount of venting are concerned, the depth of your wallet is the only limitation. There are entry, mid and advanced kites. You probably would not be able to tell the difference among them until you have hundreds of hours experience, and since the first one you have takes the worst beating and crashes and rough treatment, my advice is to learn on something cheap and/or used. But if something strikes your fancy, hey, go for it. It may not be optimum, but you'll make do until you expand your collection. Just remember, flying sport kites is addicting. So have fun, smile and don't forget to breathe.

I have allways used Climax. I regularly clean and re-proof my lines with  the Climax cleaner and  proofer  kit.  Certainly keeps them in good condition and remain able to multi wrap without problem.

2line sport kite flyer thinking about make a move to the dark side. If you can't beat um join um. Lol. But seriously, there are so many different types of Revs where do you even begin. Not to mention line weight, length, std sail, mid, full vent? Recommendations welcome
