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".

Just a quick update. Seems that Glenn had a SkyBurner Aura SUL that he was looking to part with, after some brief talks I purchased it from him! Now just the long wait till I get it. I will update with some pictures once I get my hands on it.

As a side note I have been really impressed with this community so far, lots of good vibes and willingness to help. Can't say the same for my other hobby. Glad I took the plunge.

Funny all this talk about Sixth Sense. I have been off the board for a bit, but while I was away I was ramping up for my next build. After my previous six builds, which were variations of my own design, (half of which are still under tweak mode by the way) I was ready to build something tried and true. I wanted a larger kite than what I had been building and flying. One that could take a punch yet still have a good range. Having mostly a sky shark frame was a big bonus just in availability here state side. Needless to say you can guess what I chose. Grin Standard Version has commenced. OKB I look forward to see what yours looks like!

I have reworked the bridle for this kite to attach top to bottom, to the spine rather then center T and have longer leads if anyone is interested. I think it is a great improvement over the original design.

Don't forget the s'more s bamboo sticks and other BBQ skewers are on sale at ur local supermarkets since summer is over with. 

I had no idea what you were talking about until I saw some of these at the market yesterday. In end of summer basket no less!  Cheesy It was a pack of 4 sticks which looked straight, about 3/16" x 30". Didn't get them as couldn't find price and I am working with 1/4".

I did track down the manufacturer of the Poplar dowels I have been getting from Lowes; it's Madison Mill, Inc. in Ashland City, Tennessee. Looks like they are primarily a wholesaler but will take minimum orders of $500.   Sad 'Atsa lot o' sticks!  Huh
