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".

While I'm off yanking my dual-lines around the sky, my wife likes to send up as much line laundry as possible.  What type of kite makes the best lifter?  I have sewn for her a delta and a delta conyne.  I also got her a Premier Powersled 24.  Should I add a foil to the bag?

Your a lucky man.  Maybe your wife could teach mine,  Roll Eyes

Powersleds are steady and reliable as a lifter

Adding a large foil will be a good show kite as well as a lifter.

I'd agree with a larger Power Sled as well. Great flying kite, it pulls like a truck and it's easy to launch and store.

My flow form go to kite is the WK100 or the EZ Up on Gomberg's site. But it's not really a lifter per say. Gomberg does also sell several pilots and lifters that are very good. With these you start needing to increase your anchor system.
