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".

From the estate of one of our local club members I was able to get another very cool, unusual kite, an Advantage Classic from Revolution Kites. This kite stated out as a collaboration with the Kite Loft kite shop in Ocean City MD. At the time, graphite tubes were only being used in high end kites, and Revolution thought they could produce an inexpensive, medium sized kite that would perform well at a reasonable price. More money and effort went into marketing their quad line kites, so not many were made and eventually production ended.

Yes. An attempt to diversify the line using standard rev spars and end cap fittings.  It has a rather unique specially molded centre 'T'.  If memory serves, Ron Reich may have had a hand in the design.

The connectors were just black vinyl tubing, however.

I also have one, which I got from Dan of the earlier GWTW way back when Wink
