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".

Thanks all!  Smiley
Now I need to see where I can order a pair with not too much shipping. Once I ordered a couple of spars for a New Tech Maxima and ended paying more shipping than on the actual spars.
Already have the ferrule, just need to got the broken soar out.

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

Unfortunatly, with the colored Vector lines, you'll have red, yellow, purple or green hands... Angry

Last bulk line I have bought is Skybond and it is very nice line.

Nothing wrong with LPG.

Make your own line sets, it's easy, ands like Fraser says...replace regularly

The bottom line is use the best quality line that you can find with out having to trek to the Himalayas and wrest it from a Yeti.

I haven't tried LPG or Vector, but I've used Climax Protec for several years and can't fault it. After initial flying in, line stretch is practically zero, it will take well over 20 twists without any sign of binding and it lasts for ages.  My oldest set I bought 5 years ago secondhand and I still use it! it's very faded, but no sign of any fraying at all. Good stuff!

I got a chance to try both Vector and LPG just recently, and I'm definitely sticking with my Climax Protec.
I felt both were not as easy to trick as the Climax is, after a few twists. That's my own personal observation. I also bought a spool and am making my own sets, making the Climax an even cheaper option.
