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".

Steve, the Rok spar reference chart at KB suggests FG .370 spine and .248 spreaders. You can spar up or down depending on your target wind range. FG will give you more flex but carbon could be used in the right circumstances.

Premier uses P300's in their 78" x 68" rok's, I've had no problems with any of them, we have 4 or 5. Should be more then adaquate in a 60" size, I bet you could probably go with P200 spreaders. Guess I should say P3X and P2X now since the 100 series is gone.
