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".
Questions or concerns? Contact Steve ... just drop an email to: forum.gwtwkites@gmail.com

The Prophecy will backspin even in you leave the standoffs in place.

I've done it, but I think 9 foot long arms would help!

You need 9 foot arms to spin Thor's Hammer, no I've never done it but have seen one do one rung of a jacobs ladder.

It doesn't take long arms to spin a Thors.....just a lot of ability to give it slack when the winds hit 5-6........it's much easier in 3MPH
