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".

My two Tekkens.  Cool
   I have versions for standard and light winds.  Adding a vented may make my life complete.  Cheesy

SUL flying the PDSUL and Amazing

and as Chilese said; if you fly in Las Vegas winds you need a WMUL in your bag. 
   Note: I also love the Shadow for our light winds but its hard to see at or night flys.   Sad

Benson Deep Space (great overall kite)
Nirvana UL (good trickability in lower wind and a beautiful panel layout)
Rev B Series Mid Vent with race rods when it's too breezy to trick a dual

#1.  Revolution Zen: A custom sail configuration of construction techniques and furnished components, assembled as a cooperative project with Bazzer, Shooks, Rev and Sturdy designs all contributing.  It features a French Bridle, Diamond Rev spars and a nylon\mylar backed shiny leading edge sleeve with additional reinforcing patches built-in plus a set of 18 inch magic sticks.  It flies great from an utter dead calm until other flyers are happy on "mid-vent Revs"

#2.  1.5 Shook Mesh masterpiece 40%:  It has the same design features and cooperative construction individuals involved.  Flies from about 5 mph to over 20 easily, French, Sticks, Diamonds, custom leading edge.  In fact the design style close resembles my White/Red/Blue Zen outlined above.

#3.  Rev B-2:  Stock sail, magic sticks, BLack Race (3 piece leading edge) frame, French Bridle

#4.  2nd Generation Ashworth:  Custom indoor orcon sail (Rev styled 1.5 platform) by Dave Ashworth/McLean Virginia.  what else needs to be said?  This is a guy who has mastered design and building for indoor kites, so good in fact that Revolution wants his 3rd generation model to bring to market commercially!  Mine is half the weight of the indoor stock Rev!  You drop this kite and go to the bathroom, upon your return it is still NOT on the ground.  A glide you can time with a sundial.

#5.  An indoor SLK glider by Marc Ricketts.  It's perfect for anyone, wheelchair bound spectators are a personal favorite of mine!  We take their picture flying the kite inside the Air & Space Museum and then send 'em back to school with a great story to share (and proof positive HA!)
