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".

Perhaps the spars were re-purposed into a new sail?  Or maybe the spars suffered from spontaneous deceleration syndrome?

A sail is easy to ship to Europe or Asia!

Some people might have gotten a deal on a skin to build up as project...some time teams would get extra skins as spares....

We offer a "sail only" option for our Revolution kites because many people have purchased extra frames for their standard model and only need a "vented sail" to fill out their quiver of Revs.  They use the same lines/handles/DVD and frames so there is no need to re-purchase all the same gear again.

Also I have used frames from one kite for another kite...here`s one for ya...
Wanting a 2 wrap frame in a Rev 1, I used the frame(s) from a couple of Spectra Edge SUL`s as I was going to reframe the Spectra`s.
