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".

I love your XULs.

Although that rod looks flat.  Huh

Maybe it's a new cross-section...  Roll Eyes

Trust me, it is not flat, it is just sanded down, like the nitros are.
And it is a full length tube with 3.5 grams Smiley

I made the spreader/leading edge connectors



They are made out of PTFE tubing, which provides several advantages over standard vinyl tubng or apas. Lighter, stiffer and thanks to the teflon, the insertion and puling out the rods doesn't needs much force.
So they are a very good fit to use together with fragile rods for light wind builds.

The 4 connectors wight less then a single tiny apa...
