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 was directed here from another part of the web).
 Hi, i have one, it has a spreader spar and bottom 2 piece spar of dif diameters. Doing a 'ltl' it would loose the wind out its sail and flutter to the floor. hasnt been out its tube for about 20years. I went back to flying Peter Powell trains.
 It was the most expensive thing I had ever bought at the time and was put off úprofessionalú kites.
 The Skynasaur classic 74 doesnt have any stand-offs,and the sail is limp when the spreaders are set. No looping!
 No mention of it that i can find on the internet, no pictures of it that I can find either.

 Perhaps I'll cut it down the middle and resew it into a revolution!

Standoffs will help, but modern kites are much better fliers.
