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".

Yeah, probably shopped. I mean, it looks like they thought it was a hang glider, so they probably had to make some adjustments...

The Stranger Level 7 had wingtips that bent like, but I still dont think it could carry an elephant.  Cheesy

Very tight trick line.  That'd do it.

I tend to thing Bob Childs when I look at this kite, but I'm not familiar with individual models.
