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 think W.W. means without wind

The Blue Moon MSE is the second edition of the Mako, it's quite a bit different from the Muse.

The MSE is discontinued. It was a little smaller than the other Blue Moons made at the time, an all-around fun kite. It's not designed to do some of the modern tricks as easily as newer kites. I'd say it's direct replacement is the Exile. I liked the MSE a lot, but the Exile is a much more capable kite.

The Muse is on the Mantis platform.

The last time I flew an MSE it didn't seem to want to roll up, while the Exile and Muse roll up easily.
