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".

While flying today, I had a kid come up to me with a tale of woe. Several years ago an Aunt had given him a NTK Firecracker.... his parents scratched their head when they saw the bridle and cut it off and attached a single line to the upper spreader... he now realizes it was meant to be a dual line kite. If anyone has the bridle dimensions for this kite, I will tie him a new one.

or if anyone has a similar beginner kite, I would pass it on to him.

I have a NTK Firecracker, my first kite!

If you e-mail me about it there is a 99% chance I won't forget to measure the bridle for you! (Assuming I can actually find it!)

Question?

Are these measurements taken with the bridle attached to the kite or removed from the kite?

My database wants to know

I can work with that... thank you!

I will assume it is a 3 point bridle
