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".

On the Premier model and I guess? also on the Gibian model I found these three helpful hints:

1. Use a swivel at the bridle point connection as this kite likes to turn at the bridle point connection.

2. Keep the top and lower spreader bow heights - EQUIVALNET. Not 7" top/4" bottom as per directions. More stable IMO.

3. Tension the central spine - see this thread.

4. I use 50# test line. It likes 4-10 mph.

When possible buy the ORIGINAL  Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

We went for a picnic on the east side of Lake George yesterday and went on 149 towards Fort Ann. Drive out that way and it's more open. You might find something that way. I see on Google Maps that the Gurney Lane Recreation Area is on the other side of 87 (the Northway).

We went to Shelving Rock, 13 miles up Buttermilk Falls Road. It turns to dirt for the last 3 miles but it's a neat place to check out. Do a search for more information.

Thanks so much for taking the time to explain that. I'm going your route for the moulds -- thanks again!

My pleasure! Good luck and keep us posted on your progress. Don't hesitate to ask if you have any new questions arise.

I notice Christian included the "moulds" in the download.  Only takes 14 pages on a laser printer, and the pages do have crop marks for easy alignment

I have one of the early model purple and black large Prism roll up kite bag.  As you know the large roll up bags now only come in blue or titanium colors.  This bag was one of the early models, and it should be a part of any true Prism lover.  The bag is in VERY excellent condition.  I am asking $125.00 PLUS SHIPPING.  Send me your e-mail address as I do have pictures.

I had the Stranger UL, liked it better than the Standard.
The Sky Shark frame was a lot less noodley than the stock one and the Icarex sail didn't get baggy and heavy in our damp Fall/Winter weather.

Think it went to rod247.

Hmmm now i want one
