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".

I built mine (Krijn did the sail/bridle) for 3-10 winds and have been through a solid 6 weeks of testing. Getting close to what I want, definitely some changes to the US and leech line is now static and not dynamic.  Smooth kite that tracks well, still have some washout in tight turns.  I am going to next play with an inverted turbo bridle to see if I can get the kite to be a little flatter to the wind in turns.

What I have (well almost... it's this close) is a light wind kite that is stiff and strong and has enough mass to do all the tricks I can do and learning new ones on.  I just started to figure out the TAZ.  It floats on it's back nicely (I did swap out the upper spreader with a 2cm longer one to take a touch of billow out of the sail at the nose), and I have seen it single pop yo-yo in the hands of a more talented pilot.  I am not dead set on the tail weight yet (using lead tape to tweak the weight), nor the location.  This kite will be my test bed, and then once I have it dialed in I would ask Krijn to make me another sail and build a STD version of it.

Don't get me wrong, the way the kite is designed and configured is solid... but I really like that I can tweak it a bit and really dial it in for me.  To me, that is what these open sourced kites are all about.
