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".

In the lower pic, Elliot Big Lift on the left end and Elliot Mammut on the right.  

Wish they were more prevalent in the US.  :'(  

Tom (ezme6) had both at one point or another.

We had the itty bitty Thor's Hammer out for a while at AKA Nationals last week.  That was my first chance to fly it.  Powering through the center of the window had me leaning my 240 lbs way back.  Cascades and fades worked well for me.  I couldn't quite pull off a Jacobs Ladder.  I like the big arm motions. 

Flying the TH should be part of any full body workout program. ;-)  That stack is insane!

Considering the crossbracing from the LE to the center-T (?), the Mammut must have been a bear. 

There's something special about the sail outline of the Big Lift.  Similar to the Mammut, just a hair more lithe.  Hard not to like the elephant either  Wink
