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".

The light is 3PT leading edges and 3PT lower spreaders.

The standard is 5PT leading edges and 5PT lower spreaders.

If you have a light, you can swap out the 3PT lower spreaders for 5PT lower spreaders to stiffen the kite up for stronger winds.

If you have a standard, you can swap out the 5PT lower spreaders for 3PT lower spreaders to give the kite more flex for lighter winds.

The same holds true for the UL/SUL which is 2PT. You can stiffen it up with 3PT lower spreaders.

P.S.   some people even mix the leading edges. I tried a 3PT upper leading edge with a 5PT lower leading edge and it did not do anything for me. But I frequently swap lower spreaders with good results.
