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".

Don't forget that most SUL sail material is only made in white, like the special material the CTC Ghost is using.
Plus color weights more Smiley

While i myself prefere see through for the SUL/XUL range:

I like white kites for UL's or SUL's.  But still like to have another color to give some pop to the kite.
Plus white flies easier in light wind.  Wink

This Vanishing Point was a favorite SUL.



But white isn't just for SULs. I had a whole set made in white.

ONE OTHER THING ABOUT ALL WHITE KITES IS THAT IT ALLOWS THE KITEMAKER TO SHOW OFF THEIR SEWING EXCELLENCE. I HAVE AN ALL WHITE KITE SEWN WITH BLACK THREAD AND THERE IS NOWHERE FOR ERRORS TO HIDE - ANY MISTAKE WOULD SHOW UP LIKE A SCAR ON A SUPERMODEL'S FACE. AND IT'S NOT A UL EITHER.

Mike,
ooh what does this button over here on the far left of the keyboard do.

An overcast day and an all white Snowflake.




Seems to work for me. The rainbow thread used to sew the leading edges is a real bonus.......Nice touch Wayne
