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 all time fav' was a Midi Sandpiper....Man I wish I had that kite back...


This one is available Smiley An original Midi by Chris, only flown a couple of times.



Talk to me! I had #1234... Blue fade I traded Chris for.  If I could find that kite....

If you like kites like the Midi Sandpiper & Reflex, kites that haven't sacrificed everything for weights and pitch tricks, try to get your hands on a Blue Moon Exile.
You cant get them new any more sadly but they pop up in the for sale section often enough. They make a nice crossover between the kind of kites you seem to like and 'modern' kites

I say this mainly because I like late 90s kites like Mathesons, Bensons etc. and the Exile is one of my favourite kites flying similar to those older kites but capable of modern stuff too
