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".

Looking to add a kite to my kit, these two are interesting prospects.  Opinions welcome.

I haven't flown the Genesis Level 1, by I really love my Widowmaker.  It's currently my favorite kite in my bag (including a Deep Space, Quantum Pro, and Mamba).

When you say Gen Level 1 are you referring to a Level One Genesis or a Benson Gemini?  I have never flown a Widow Maker but I like the Level One Genesis alot.

Looks as if you have decided on some high-profile kites and either one or both should give you satisfaction but, if not, you should be able to move them quickly on the Swap Meet, particularity the Widowmaker. Stoney

The Widowmaker is still a great kite for us less skilled pilots, it's forgiving of less then perfect inputs and gives back a decent results.

+1. it does hand tricks out very easy. My vote is still for the ocius. You can learn better timing when a kite doesnt hand out tricks and can do tricks fast, and slow. The UL is excellent, also.

Logic like this makes me think I should tie 2 lines to a cinder block and start practicing my timing.  Roll Eyes

Apples and oranges John. The Cinder Block is not available as a UL and it does tricks very quickly with horrible oversteer. I hear Mark Reed does a pretty awesome Axel with one though.  Tongue
