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 like it in light winds, I remove the tail weight and the upper spreader when the wind gets very light, and then when the wind starts to disappear, I break out my Inner Space.

Fast - when the wind picks up it gets fast - I prefer not to fly it when it gets fast, as my reactions are not what they were once.
Precise - not really - I can get snappy corners out of it, but it's definitely not designed to do straight lines and corners.
Floaty - yes - maybe because it's a ¾ sized kite, it feels light on the lines.
Responsive - yes, definitely - it's positively playful.

The deep space has a light pull and offer a nice flying experience.  It does handle higher winds better than most standards.  You won't be doing many tricks but it does fly well.
