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".
Questions or concerns? Contact Steve ... just drop an email to: forum.gwtwkites@gmail.com

If so, and if you ever want to sell it pm me please. That thing is pretty. ....

Hey Matt, I'm happy to provide you with samples of the three different brands of RIPSTOP NYLON (guaranteed, it's ripstop, and it's nylon!) that I sell. http://www.flymarketkites.com/34-oz-ripstop-nylon/  Texlon, Mirai, and Chikara, all the same weight but all with very different feels because of their coatings. And if you want a sample of ripstop polyester, talk to Jon or Marieanne at Kites & Fun Things. (Click the SkyShark/Skyburner link on the right).


Appreciate the offer, but Im stuck with using fabrics that my manufacture can get. Smiley

Thanks for the extra info it helps with advice. It makes no difference what the fabric base is nylon or poly. The price is less about the base fiber and more with the quality of the weaving and finishes. The best example from kite making is the more advanced sport kites often use an expensive lightweight poly. one of the factors you need to study is, http://textilelearner.blogspot.com/2013/08/study-on-air-permeability-and-porosity.html. you actually need to be able set a parameter for performance to get the product you need.




Thanks, yes the weaving of the smoother material (the high density nylon) is much tighter. Again its not for kites but I really appreciate everyones input.

So can we conclude that this is indeed nylon yet?:


ps: Just made a donation to the site's paypal...thanks all for your advice.
