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'm not sure why R-Sky got introduced into this conversation. They have nothing to do with it. I was asking about Aerostuff ferrules. I want to put Aerostuff spreaders on my Cosmic TC and was hoping there was an alternative to the $25 Aerostuff ferrules.

'Cos we'll talk about anything and the initial topic is just a starting point for our little conversations.  Undecided

There are alternatives but do remember that legend has it that Aerostuff ferrules, like the spars, are indestructible.

Oh...  Huh



Given that it is quite cool that these hollow ferrules are tapered and do indeed fit snugly and neatly together.



Of course, whether or not this is worth $25 to you or indeed to anyone is another matter.

Hi,
the original Kitehouse Cosmic TC AS comes with Gold as lower spreaders.
I, personally, would try some Nitros instead ...

But, send Christian Stahl an email and ask him, it's his kite, so he knows best.
