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".

Just for a comparison: I'm six foot, and in this picture standing uphill of the wingtips.  Awesome BIG kite, that flys pretty low and tricks well, considering it weighs three pounds dry.

Very nice build quality-some humongus spars.....the lower spreaders are as thick as my pinkie finger................

If you're asking about windrange?...It's purported to be 3-14 MPH....................I have only flown it way down low 2-3 MPH and it had little or no pull.............still it has a very solid feel.......you know it's there, for sure.

Hope that helps,
Jim

What is so surprising is just how well this monster can trick.  It can flic-flac, axle (beautifully and super flat), Jacobs, 540, cascade, backspin, lazy susan.....  But, you do have to do a ton of running and the tugs are all like huge lawn-mower pulls!  In the stronger winds, I love taking off the leach line and letting this baby thunder.  It has a very nice thundering rumble as it pulls through the air - if you are wanting to get some attention, this is the kite to do that.  This is really an awesome kite to fly.

Yes.

Question is, can you steer a wheelchair with your hands full?
