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".

Finally have time to fly a bit again, and have been looking around...What the heck happened to Benson imports? Don't we get them in the States anymore? Will we ever?

Still being brought in, the strength of the Euro had made imports pretty expensive for a few years. Google it and you'll find a few North American dealers. Most custom builders, Tim included have been struggling and sales have now become directly through them though, there just hasn't been room for a retailer markup the last few years.

As far as I know, Benson only sells direct. They have a great web site.
