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 recently bought myself a shiny new 4D and am totally thrilled with it (I've never owned a UL/SUL before). It did really well in light, choppy, sometimes gusty winds but I was a little apprehensive about pushing the boundaries when the gusts evened out into strong winds.

I adjusted the tow points on the bridle to buy me a little extra time on the field and was wondering if sliding the standoff positions around would also help to absorb stronger winds? I remembered something about sliding the outer standoffs in for lighter winds (but I'm not sure if that's even the case with the 4D) and thought it seemed logical that sliding them out for stronger winds would be feasible. Anybody here tinker with 4D standoff positions? I didn't want to mess around with this sort of thing just yet as I'd like to get my bearings with the kite set to stock standard settings first.
