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".

I own 3 Prism kites and recently broke a Ferrell ( in the middle of the wing ) on my 4D and was wanting to "apply" at the Prism forum to discuss the replacement procedure, well you need to first "apply" then I was evaluated by "Steve" after my application was evaluated,, I was "DENIED" Huh? Undecided HUH Huh? I've NEVER been denied from a public forum HuhRoll Eyes
anyways that kind of irritated me,, so,,, anyone have any experience replacing an inner wing Ferrell on a 4D ? I would assume the entire top spar needs to be slid out to the bottom of the wing as theres no other way to get it out mid wing

Morning...
Steve here at this forum has access to all of the Prism parts and kites...so he can get anything you need from him....

The ferrule broke? is the rod still good? is it connected to the upper leading edge or the lower?

to remove the ULE you would slide the LLE rod down until the ULE rod can come out where the lowr spreader connects to the Leading Edge......you will have to loosen up the bridle loops on the ULE to do this and remove the fittings as well....not too bad of a job to do.....

Pictures always help if you can snap them...

this should help get your 4D leading edge out ...
http://kite-kids.blogspot.com/p/blog-page_6.html
the ferrule is glued to the upper leading edge. I have had good luck breaking that bond by dunking it into hot water.  be sure to inspect both upper and lower leading edge for additional damage.

As to the Prism Forum ...
send a short email to: prismsteve@gmail.com and I will be sure to get your registration approved

thank you both for commenting,, very much appreciated guys !!
yes, the Ferrell is attached to the upper leading edge, I assumed because its attached with CA ( super glue) that the bond couldn't be broken without damaging the carbon spar, so I went and ordered both, it wasn't expensive so I figured I'd get both,, it did appear as though the bridal loops and spreaders would need to be removed and wasn't sure how difficult of a procedure that would be,, I'll be attempting the procedure when that parts arrive though, its a fun and fast flying kite  Wink thanks again for your input and I'll be sure to send an email to Steve for approval ,, thanks guys  Smiley

 Sorry to bring this up again, but I recently tried to join and was declined. Other than owning six Prism kites, what sort of credentials does a person need to qualify?  Good Lord!  Roll Eyes

send an email to prismsteve@gmail.com and re-register
it is not about your credentials. more a matter of timing. the forum has no anti-spammer filtering and 99.5% of the registrations are would be spammers. some days there can be as many as 150 registrations and if I take a little time off, as I did this weekend, upon my return there were a ton of registration requests to deal with.
My apologies. I assure you it is nothing personal.
definitely re-register. that forum gets first notification of any excitement coming from Prism.  Not saying an announcement is eminent ... just saying you should be watching just in case.

Its definitely a LOT better than it was before you took over Steve.  Having a regular forum manager makes a difference.

I tried signing up for the Prism for a couple of dozen times over the last 2 weeks. Each time I get a server error and that is as far as I get. I sent an email to the forum admin, and never heard anything back. Seems as if the forum doesn't work anymore.

Been trying to register for 2 weeks, with no success. Keep getting a server error. I just sent a second email today. Hopefully it will be fixed, because having a place to ask questions about Prism Kites is important.

The Prism forum has been down for months and they don't seem to be in any hurry to fix it - shame as there was some good stuff on there. If you have any Prism related questions just ask on here as most of us hang out on both forums.

OK, thanks. I imagine that it is costing them sales to some extent. I alone purchased two other kites, mainly due to the problems getting answers to pre-purchase questions I had on the Prism forum.
