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".

I own a Stripes that has a worn out connector.  It is a paddle shape that is flat and is riveted to the sail and a wrapped tube slips over it.  I remember it being referred to as a paddle connector by the folks at Goodwinds, years ago.   I looked at Steve's site, and Goodwinds and Hang Em High and can no longer find the piece.  Anyone know what I am typing about and even better, anyone have a few I can procure?

How did it wear out?  Operator Error. There is a pair attached at the stand-off and longeron(or whatever you care to call the side spines between the center spine and leading edge.)  The one on the right kept getting folded when put away. The stand off now slides through it.  The stand-off could be glued in place for a few more hours of flight before it totally breaks off, but a more permanent solution is desirable.  The paddles are used as stand-off connectors all down the trailing edge  The availability of better parts expanded after this kite was designed, but I am hoping for an "original part" solution.
