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".
Questions or concerns?  forum.gwtwkites@gmail.com

It's never that easy.  Using a harder surface would put the stress on another portion of the sail.  Let's say you use a stiff Kevlar.  The edges of the Kevlar would start to bite into the surrounding materials leading to potential failure.

Of course that is an extreme example.  Personally I would go for Teflon!

Hey Mr C,
we did tamper with the bridle a bit, but it was right the 1st time we flew it.
The mods didnt seem to change much for flight charactericts though. There was a small difference but not really anything to note-worthy.  Sad
