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".

Is Christian OK with the Monster plans being shared among builders?  Odd they were not posted like his other kites.  Sad

i am a skydiver too. Would you buy a Chinese knockoff of a Javelin, PD reserve or Cypres ?
Would you jump North Korean gear ? (It exists)
As for parachutes I do not really care if it is Chinese or whatever. As long as it flies ok. There are strict regulations in this market. My reserve and rig are French, but I would never buy a French car.
As for Cypres, once when I was in the us, one DZ used the American knockoff. It had almost killed people so this DZ told tandem master to make sure it was turned off. Law said an AAD must be installed but nothing about it being turned on. The Protrack knockoffs also had trouble in the beginning. But it does not mean that only the 2 best products has the market for itself. Even in life saving devices there is competition, and even bad American knockoffs.

Don't think things are necessarily better when created in the U.S.  In many countries Italian stuff is considered good. In Northern Europe it is considered quite bad.

Didn't make it for the free shipping, but Just wanted to mention on the forum that our recent fabric order seemed to be fairly priced and the speedy service was exceptional.
Thanks guys!  Cool
Will have a much better order soon.

So tonight i finished up the reinforcements and sewed all the places need be. Boy do my eyes ache :'(. Trying to sew that small was tedious but VERY FUN. I also made the spine and spars. I will let all the glue setup tonight. Tomorrow I will trim battons to length and do the line work. Then the fun begins getting everything dialed in so she flys and glides like a dream.. I am having a blast making the BOP 12.
