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".

We use several different line sets, so winding on the handles is not for us. We have both used John's method, with a couple of small modifications, for many years with very good results. Never more than five minutes unless I try to "shortcut" John's method. It never ends up as a shortcut.

^ I use several different line weights and lengths too, I just use more sets of handlesWink
Some of the handles are different lengths and I find that helps with certain wind conditions.
