Welcome to the GWTW Forum.
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".

6 lines....a new kind of kite?  Huh  Smiley No, simply my two lines kites plus my friend Gabriele's 4 lines. Gabriele spent his vacation at his relatives' home close to me, so what better than having a couple of nice flying sessions? He flew his selfbuilt Maiocchis', and I flew my selfbuilt Organic and two of my classic Prisms, the Total Eclipse and the Vented Eclipse. Two great flying sessions which I want to share, hoping you'll enjoy the pics.

Great looking kites.  At some point I hope to try kite making,it must be quite a thrill to fly what you have built.

Yes it's a great feeling to fly for the first time the kite you made, and then discover that it flies smooth just you hoped. More, when you try the first tricks and see that your "creature" is doing what you want, it's stunning.
I built four kites till now: two Vortex (STD and UL) if you missed the topic, you can find them here http://www.gwtwforum.com/index.php?topic=3452.0 , and two Organic (STD and UL), I will post them in a couple of days.

Thanks for posting! I still think the Eclipse Series are some of the best looking kites that have ever been produced.  Smiley

Nice to see the E is getting some air time.  Wish I could say the same for my other kites!
