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 recently purchased a Prism NEXUS 5-STACK but, the last kite in the stack doesn't fly as tight as the other kites. I read in the instructions that you need to tie a knot in the line between the 4th and 5th kite. How is this done and how big does the knot need to be and, how much of the line will be taken up by tying the knot ?

From the Nexus 5 stack manual:
"On the last kite in the stack, shorten the two link  lines that connect to the lower spreader attach  points (highlighted). Shorten these lines by about 1" by tying an overhand loop in each line. This changes the shape of the last kite slightly and helps it track straight with the others."

Can see a picture of the referenced knot here.

Hope that helps.

ATB,
Sam
