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".

Checking to see if anyone has reframed a Utopia with SkyShark or other with positive results. Would appreciate any feed back.  Undecided

Thanks, Rick

To what benefit?  Cost savings maybe but they are pretty stinkin' good just the way they come (at least rod-wise ... admittedly the fittings suck big time).  One change that they did make was to switch the lower spreaders from T8's to T 10's.  If yours isn't framed like that I would recommend doing so.

Availability and durability mainly. I'm breaking both upper leading edges and spreaders, tired of repairing them, but I enjoy flying the kites. 

I missed the T10 bargain sale by...that much!
Steve, what's the lead time on a Dynamic order?

Thanks, Rick
