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 got a used Utopia off the swap meet here and no matter how I try to get it together the parts just don't seem correct. Does anyone out there know the specs for the spars on this kite or know where I might get them? Thanks for any help. Ted

Ted,

Upper leading edge and spreaders were either Dynamic T-8 or T-10.
ULE -40", Spreaders 28"
Lower leading edge looks like fiberglass tube 17.5" long and 0.155 dia. (might be 3mm, I'm not good at conversions).

I bought most or all of Steve's Utopia rods a few months back. I've got a few spares, if I can help you out let me know by email.
Good luck,
Rick
