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".

Very nice kite.  After seeing your post on FA I decided to get one!

Should be a nice kite knowing the builder and designer!

Dave, not disputing you at all but to be honest, you could bridle up a piece of plywood and make it fly great.  Cheesy

UL on the left?

These kites will be very nicely made to boot. I was very impressed with the construction/quality on the Mondrian.

Thanks Randy, but you are too good! Cheesy

Yes, the UL is on the left.

I 've write a review with some photos on K2 UL on my blog, it's in italian, but google translate could help you! Wink

Here the link: http://stuntkitepalermo.blogspot.com/2009/12/k2-ul-by-challenger-sails.html

See you soon.

Not only well made, but I believe they are Marco Chini designs to boot.  I've always wanted to see a larger Opera (There was that 2.4 Opera that disappeared) and this could be it.

Nice kites! I have a Kandinski (?) and really like it. Loads of fun and the 3/4 size is a blast. Grin

I might be totally incorrect but didn't Marco and Challenger part company? I seem to recall someone stating that on here, or the old forum, when someone said the same thing.

For sure the Operas were great kites.

I'm sorry but it's not correct, the only challenger's kite designer is alex moroni in collaboration with luca guardigli (mondrian, mirņ) and paolo terra (mirņ, k2). Also stefan furter helped a little bit alex in the k2 project. Marco chini don't take part of the company.
My english is bad, i hope you could understand me! Smiley
