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? Contact Steve ... just drop an email to: forum.gwtwkites@gmail.com

...Do I have to spend more than an hour on a 30 min LE replacement because you go nuts on the Super Glue EVERYWHERE!

D-it!

Is it me or breaking every c-clip and ripping every rubber end cap (and the rubber band used to hold the sail tension line) overkill?

It's always the pretty ones that cause the most trouble.

Then I should have bought that Neon Green/brown custom I saw!

I look like my avatar right now!

I've had a lot of KiteHouse kites through my hands and a rubber band has never been used to tension the sail, are you the original owner?

No he's not, but I promise, I've never touched that LE setup, it's exactly the way it came.... no need of messing with a one piece LE.
Should the rubber band not go over nock like an end cap?

Apparently it does considering they even glued that pretty well.
