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".

R-Sky added also a pair of finger straps, no charge. Very nice of them. 2 months wait since my order
Kite is very well built, minus some details I had to “improve”.

The center T was loose and without a stopper for itself and the lower bridle. Taped it.  Same for the upper and lower spreaders. The yo-yo stoppers were loose as well, managed to fix them in place with zip ties. That was a bit of a surprise. Wing tensioning is very straightforward method, but has no reference knots, getting the two wings tensioned the same was not obvious at first. The bridle seems overly hefty for a SUL kite, I’ll try a replica in 100lbs line. Soldi construction, love the colors, can’t wait to try it. :-)
