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".

Are there any advantages to using bigger handles, say 15 inch, with stacks?

You will double the pull of the kite.... Whether or not the normal stack lines are overkill at the test it is made out of is a different question...
I go by the thinking that I want to easily be able tie the knots needed.... So a slightly thicker line is good for me extra strength be damned

Maybe I'm being too picky. But I thought if I had two sul s I could use a lighter stack line.

Ron D. Memorial Revolution is an outstanding idea.

Some graphic showing "Quadzilla" seems appropriate.

Hopefully, one of the artistic Masterpiece people could make one.

Ron Bohart comes to mind.

A Memorial Service will be held for Ron on Thursday April 16 at Glen Abbey Mortuary and Memorial Park here in San Diego. The service will be followed by a Potluck lunch and Kite Fly at Glen Abbey.

Attire: Black Shorts and White Tee Shirts or Hawaiian Shirts are encouraged of      course!

SDKC traditionally holds a Memorial Fly at its May Meeting (May 16 this year) and of course Ron will be at the top of our thoughts this year.

Any and All, Near or Far, are encouraged to attend either or both events.

More details and any late breaking news can be found at SDKC's website:

At yesterdays club meeting we heard that Ron's family were amazed by the number of posts from around the kiting world on Ron's Facebook Page.

Well said, Dave.

If Revolution doesn't make a Ron Despojado Commemorative Edition (and I hope they do), I'll be looking to get that all-white SUL Rev I'd been considering.  Maybe you might consider getting a box of those.

I'm already contemplating a couple of ideas we can implement as a group to honor Ron, and I'll report back once they solidify a bit.  Just some ideas to toss out.

I've got to say, in the midst of tragic news like this, it's really good to be part of the close community we have here.

Welcome to the forum.  The Quantum is a good strong kite for beginners. Take a look at these videos to get you started.

On some videos I've seen the kite is quite loud and roars like a jet plane.

It is the wind that blows into the microphone of the camera.
