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".

Yesterday morning I straightened the tube and took "Her" to the field.  The wind was almost nothing.  "She" rose gracefully into the air and we danced for most of an hour.

It was a good day.

A simple Waltz or a nice Tango?  Wink

That's great!

A nice break from quads for sure.

 Grin Glad to hear it Burke.

I personally preferred that kite much better than the 2 models of 3-d's i own.

I'm trying to learn to fly a dualie.  I doubt I will ever be much of a trickster though.  Maybe a bit of ballet now and then.

It seems like there are those who prefer quads and those who prefer duals. The quad people seem to like the precision that quads do and sociability of team flying. The dual people seem to like the trickability of duals and the practice it takes to learn new tricks. (That's me. I'm not particularly skilled in anything on a consistent basis but I like the practice and being able to actually make a trick work.)

If you have the least interest in learning to trick a dual, play around in wind speeds less than 9 mph with a good, trickable kite.

If the wind is too light, it's not as much fun because I haven't learned how to coax the lady as well as some of the others here. I'm still young (relatively) and I'm not confined to a wheel chair yet so there's still time. It's nice to have a kite appropriate for the wind speeds.
