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".

Does anyone know how to connect the E2 lines to the kite.  The end of the lines have a very small loop and a black tab, the loop is too small for a larks head, and the instructions do not explain this.

I hope this is not embarrassingly simple!   Cry

You still larkshead it. The black tap is to assist in untying the knot.

Keep pushing line through the loop and it will keep getting bigger.  Wink

The loop may not be large enough to do the thumb & forefinger insert to twist the larkshead but you still do a larkshead, just a bit differently.

Hold the original loop in one hand, with the other hand grab the line 6 inches or so away and fold it in half making another loop sort of, insert that new loop through the original loop. Now grab your new loop on the other side of the original and open it - that's where you'll insert the pigtail from the kite. Hold the pigtail and pull on the line and it'll cinch right up into your larkshead.

Gotcha!  The size and the tab kind of confused me, thanks!   Smiley
