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".

Like all versions of the Blackjack (and many other Level One kites) The Fly didn't have a fixed specification by any means. Not in terms of framing, bridling, trick-line, etc. Someone could give you the exact numbers for their kite as it sits in their hands and it be quite different from yours. Mine went through a whole raft of re-framing choices and never stopped being a good kite so I'd be inclined to simply apply some sense and frame it with whatever looks about right.
