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".

A lot of thought and a lot more work went into designing and sewing these together. Nice job.
Very kind of you, thanks!

 
Why the blue webbing over the black on the very end/wrist part of the strap?
It makes that part more firm and less prone to bend and twist when the kite pulls.

For most ppl (myself included) it really doesn't matter which you use.

The key thing is replace the lines when they're worn and/or get sticky.

Tricking high end kites on &%#*ty lines is a fools errand.

I agree. I havent looked in awhile, this past weekend I broke a couple linesets in heavy wind flying my Hawaiians.
Its just odd how much more LPG and Shanti cost compared to the Climax and Vector lines. They're all spectra.

I buy LPG by the spool - it's much cheaper and tying your own lines is easy and empowering for when they eventually 'creep' and need to be re-cut to the same length again. 

I bought a 1000' spool years ago (my second) and still have some left.

Been looking at new linesets, guess its been awhile since I priced any cause Laser Pro Gold seems like its getting pricey.
I have a set of Vector lines I got from Jorgen a while back that are 150# @ 98ft and I can buy two sets of them for the price of same spec LPG.
Climax Protec (their best line) is similar, even with shipping from overseas I can get two set compared to LPG.

Whats everyones thoughts on Climax and Vector?

Personally I like the Vector set I have, its very responsive, easy to see, and has held up very well.

As LPG and Shanti are the only real quality brands available in the USA are they just marking them up to make more profit?
