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".

This episode of Back To The Old School covers Psycho's bigger and older brother is : the Flexifoil Stranger designed by Andy Preston. Flown at the Zandmotor beach in light and moderate wind. Thanks to Chris Wojtas for providing his pristine Stranger. No mods, except for the temporary clip-on yoyo stoppers and i removed the trickline for this session. Enjoy!

Gave me inspiration to dig out mine, one of my very first real trick kites. Great video!

Be interested in how you did the 'temporary clip-on yoyo stoppers' referred to above.

Hope this pic works and complies with board guidelines:

Karel and I talked about this video on Facebook, and it got me wondering.

Karel and other stranger owners (sounds weird, haha!)- do you redo the tension system on your kites, so the rubber bands don't stretch too far? Seems to be quite a problem on mine, but have only flown it once.

As always dude, great flying!!!!

Nope i didn't change it. Just removed the trickline but that changes the shape of the kite quite a bit.
I hate the trickline...
