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".

The vinyl tubing on bottom center bridle still doesn't make sense to me. No mention of it in instructions. No pics on other kites. Maybe a add on for stacking? Line is different also. 3 grand daughters showed up yesterday.5, 8 and 10. Don't think I want to do a 5 hour road trip to Boulder with them LOL. Winds were 25 to 30 this morning but should be going lower throughout the day. They're getting the bug. Wanted to fly when they got here and 1st thing this morning. Snapshot 1.4 time  Smiley.

Consider putting up a pic or 2 of the parts that concern you. Perhaps someone will have an idea or suggestion.

Are you saying the center-T is moving up and down when assembled? The lower spreaders and T should be fixed after assembly.

Does anyone have steps to assemble new tech firestorm.
I was able to assemble the kite but i see trailing spreader moving near centerT (L). is this normal?

He made a Pro Dancer for me a few months back. Seen some pics of a single line kite he's recently done.Got the white Widow Maker Pro sewn by Steve that was listed here. Super happy with both. Hopefully they'll be making more . Got the impression that Inak, Niknak,Aura and the like had become cost prohibitive to make. If 10 of us were to each order a Solus maybe we could twist his arm. I'd sure like to have a purple one with pink dorts.

They are making the Fulcrum quad, so there must be some assembly going on.....I am not certain how big the group cutting and sewing is.
