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".

Edit: Remembered about a picture I saw of the printed kite skins before they were made into kites.  Found it here: Looks like a border of white fabric to me. Smiley

YESSSSS dragonfish! Well done!
My intuition did work. You can see it is actually white Icarex and the black is also printed together with the rest of colors.
It would have been very strange that colours should lokk as bright as they do had it been printed on black material.

Also, at the ski resort up the road, where I'm putting in some p/t hours on the Tubing hill (yeah, I'm a pusher), we've got a solid 4 foot base.

I just enjoy Al Roker trying hard not to have an orgasm on live TV as he talks about "bombogenesis" and "polar vortexes."  Cheesy

Hey Rob,
We got around 20" as well. The wind doesn't affect us too much as we're nestled into the side of a hill that blocks wind from the NorthEast. Good to hear you still have power, this is the worst time of the year to lose it. There's only so much the fireplace can do when it's 20* out....

Our newsman in Las Vegas told us to drive carefully because we

had "puddling" in several locations.  Huh

Only have ~20" of snow up here..... Not such a monumental storm as they thought it was going to be..... But still have been out shoveling and snow blowing in 30 mph winds gusting to 50mph..... Love living on the cost in the northeast!!

RobB how are you guys doing?

I recently acquired a Vapor (my third, but it's been maybe 8 years since the last one) and it will be interesting to compare with my other two "floaty flatspinny SUL" benchmarks, the Vanishing Point and the TrickTail UL.

Don tuff (bagywrinkle) here on the forum has had luck sewing on new tubing.... I prefer to change over to a hard plastic FSD style nock that had a closed end, but the line slips in on the side. That is what Marc used on the Tapertail S and is most secure and long lasting.

Thief, I may need to talk to you.  I picked up one of the foils at an auction, and the fittings are gone (pvc tubing rotted away).  I need to figure out the best way to repair it and get it flying again.
