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".

Quick question,

I have a flying wings 2.5 UL and a Lam Hoac ATM. Both are framed with Dynamic sticks. Are replacements available in the USA? I don't have a critical need at the moment but I would like to have some spares available for future needs. Any advice would be very helpful

Red and white verticle stripes, blue trailing edge with an ususual standoff design. Like to know the background history on this one. Why is it called a "Nasty Wing"? Looks fairly tame to me.......

I've had this for a while but forgot the history. Anyone?

I didn't know that. I figured heat would destroy the spar material.  If the shaft diameter is just a little smaller than a standard fitting I have stainless steel tape to wrap on the shaft. There is always steel, brass and aluminum tubing that can be soldered or brazed.  You can cut suitable sections from the shaft of a golf club and braze them together. The Salvation Army or Goodwill sometimes has $1 or $2 clubs.  There are also injection molding kits avalable. I think I just talked myself out of using a 3D printer.
