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".

Do you guys tangle the lines a bit first with a few round of circles so that both lines have a much better chance to catch the yoyo stoppers on both sides of the LEs?

I would say twist one time instead of tangle.

Normally no. But I have added the twist pre-yo-yo on

numerous occasions.

Plus, I almost always put a twist in the lines to take photos when by myself.

It just seems more dynamic.

Hmmm... can't agree there.   Sad

They add 11 extra hooks to prevent your line sliding off the leading edge when you catch a bad wing wrap  Embarrassed

Skyclaws rock!   They're cool looking, functional, and the kind of innovation that I like to see. 

in particular, the version on his ATM are slick - very low profile. 

But, to each his own, I suppose.   The claws give me a little more confidence when going for many wraps in bad wind when things can get a little off.
