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".

DIY?
I'm the worst fumble finger in the world but after some practice, I found tying bridles to be pretty easy and quick. Creating a new or modified bridle is another thing entirely, but making an existing design or replacing a worn out bridle is cake.

Save on postage as well. Have a go...

For your delta drive contact Jon or Marianne Trenephol here http://www.kitesandfunthings.com  For your Vendetta contact Shawn Tinkham through here http://www.vipersportkites.com/vipersportkites_002.htm.  Shawn isn't currently making the kites but I'm sure he will at least give you the specs for the bridle to make one.

If you still have the old bridle, it's fairly easy to duplicate it.
