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".
Questions or concerns? Contact Steve ... just drop an email to: forum.gwtwkites@gmail.com

9 .2400" sticks that ferrule into 3 spreaders that go straight point to opposing point.....
Two bow lines go across the back from the clock points 10->4 and 2->8....
You can lose direction on the individual skins but they're all attached together but they can twist inside of each other very well. ..
Simple 3 leg bridle that attaches at, never seen this before, the top three rods... So there is no bottom support by the bridle.... Rides on the wind more like a dragon kite.

Definitely a winner
