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".

Jorgen, Do you feel you have maintained the flight characteristics with yours compared to the original version? They look excellent too, by the way.

The frame is close and shouldn't change the character of the kite but the roll bars are an interesting change. I've thought of trying them on the Mohawk XS but didn't want to mess with a good thing. I really want to try your version of the kite.

Have you made a UL yet?

Very nice stuff indeed Grin

Having seen Jorgens Seven up close I know his stuff is A Grade. That's why I bought one of the XS's, can't wait to get my hands on it Grin

the roll bars are an interesting change
The pre-XS Mo' was rollbarred.

I think what we all need to do is buy up the production rights to our favourite old kites and send them to Sweden  Wink
