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".

Here is the "matching" half vented all framed up.

As mentioned, the vents can be opened in stages by folding the cover under and then removing it altogether as needed.  This adds another 5mph or so upper wind range to the Std without much added weight.  With the UL and HV Scott should be good for winds ~3-20 depending on conditions.

Helped Jim get this brand new, 35 year old beauty flying for it's very first time Sunday. A standard with K75 fiberglass spars. Flew great in the 7-12 mph winds we had, been a long time since I flew one. Fun

Our local TOTL dealer had a habit of stripping parts off new kites to replace lost or broken parts for people who had purchased one from him. He never ordered new parts and they went into the back room. This sweet one was only missing the stand-offs & fittings. We started out to do it old school with clear vinyl tubing, white fiberglass and stoppers where the stand-offs went through the sail. But the parts box came up with with some HQ fittings that just needed a little drilling, 3mm carbon and Jaco sail connectors.

That's Ted (Gliderdude) holding it up.

Not a great weekend for flying but a great weekend to spend with new friends.  Just got home and haven't downloaded pictures yet.  Saturday was wet and rainy.  Sunday was cloudy and very, very windy.  Not too many kites in the air.  All weekend was chilly to cold.  It was my first time and I'm planning on going again next year.

I just realized how old this thread is.
Hahaha,  Thanks Coop!  I just sent these to the UK to be flown with the Flying Fish.  They were just collecting dust with me, and so, I sent them to a great home.
