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".

Hello Smiley. Iím planning to buy Hq Stratus. Does anyone have any experience? Is it fragile? Does it suit for beginner?

We're raffling off a Level One Black Pearl UL to help raise funds for the Old Dominion Sport Kite Championships, ODSKC.

The kite was used for a review - see here:

but is otherwise in excellent condition.

Tickets cost $10 and only 40 will be on offer.

Shipping to the winner is free within the lower 48, and extra at actual expense overseas.

Details here:

Great question!  I first flew my Zero G with no thought to the issue of the winder.  I let it lay upon the grass with a sad result, I stepped on it & broke the brittle plastic winder.  So I made a wooden one out of a scrap of purple heart wood.  It is thick enough that I can step on it but now I usually unwind plenty of line & put it well out of the way.  I have tried the pocket method.  It works fine if flying powered up in a breeze.  But for me, while flying in zero wind, I feed too much line & it's back on the ground in no time.  But I'm just out here flailing as usual....  SHBKF

Thank you.   Some people seem to be wrapping line around two's hard to see well.

Usually you pull off whatever length you need to fly and then stuff the rest in your pocket.  The line does end on the ground when you pull the line in but after some practice, you learn how to side step it or walk to the side as you pull so you don't end up stepping on it, then when the kite glides away you feed it back out.  Rarely do you ever get tangles in the line.

After watching every video......I still can't figure out where people are putting the line hoop.
On the ground?  In their pocket?   How are they not tangling the line after it dumps on the ground.  All the videos show the kites and NOT their hands.  I see them, pulling line all the time and pulling in but how do they not tangle?  Mine arrives today.............

Nice score on the kite. 

Unfortunate that the Wind Gods are unhappy.  BASKL had a hard time at our competition today as well, with wind checks being called left and right.  If only we knew why the Wind Gods are unhappy and how to appease them.

Life is short, and there are never enough kite people in it.

Never a good time to lose a friend.  Sad
