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".
Questions or concerns? Contact Steve ... just drop an email to: forum.gwtwkites@gmail.com

It's done!!! well all most.....
Still need to fit some jojo stoppers and a rub patch

Frame:
2p leading egde's, 2pt spine, 3pt lower spreaders, 5mm structil upper spreader, 2mm stand off's and 12 grams tail weight
All the apa's are tiny

You might think for 4mm upper spreader and 3mm tubes for standoffs instead of 2mm rod, they are ligter and stiffer.

also for Your next SUL You may use spinaker instead of dacron for reinforcments:)

The leading edges are grom spinakeer, the only thing dacron is the crossreinforcement.

The only reinforcement made from dacron is the centercross piece, the leading edges are spinaker.
About the upperspreader its very possible that i'm going to replace it for a 3 /4 mm spreader.

Its all about trial and error
