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".

Looks familiar to me too...

Is that tube connectors?

Let me know if it's for sale, even if we have no idea what it is.   Smiley

Hey, the woman I sit next to at work (32 years old) had never heard of Dick Clark.

I almost choked her with my Oxygen tube.

I think you have the maker right but its not a Katana.  Looks like a Marty Sasaki Katana but slightly wider nose and less panels.  Here's a katana I used to have.
