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".

Girl... you are welcome to hijack mine if you'd like.  Wink But yes... your number 3 is also tight.

I know how decisive you are... so please make sure you give yourself enough time to think about it and DON'T be hasty...  Cool

That happens to me all the time...  Wink Although, that could be because I finally ordered my JoE Talon and am sooooo excited to get it...  Grin

You really can't go wrong with any of the BMK kites though. That's what I had decided on and was ready to purchase. I just spent too much time online reading reviews and watching youtube and all that jazz... I know that I would have been happy with the BMK... (I was leading towards the exile) there was just something about the way that the Talons fly that drew me in..

One thing to keep in mind though... Is that you will probably end up buying the whole BMK line so I wouldn't worry too much about which one you get first... But I do agree with everyone else. It's probably a good thing that you got the Nexus first because lawn darts are certainly in your near future.  Grin I waited until I could control the kite and land it before I went and spent almost $400 on a kite..  Huh

Anyway, I'm sure you'll love whatever you get and keep us posted on what you decide.

No I could not come up with a GOOD way to play off a rainbow with the Mongoose sail. However I did take a hint and came up with a few great ideas, if I do say so myself. I am quite happy with nearly all of them. I just made it harder, and right after my breakup with the Blue + yellow. Oh humanity...

Here they are, sorry it is massive I kept adding more:


Anyone stick out as a "Holy Cow, dat dar kite gots some gooooood colorin'!" kite? I am taking it all in.

There are a disgusting number of good choices in there... you are SOOOOOO screwed.

Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy I know the feeling - it's sort of like being in a REALLY big Coach store and being paralyzed by the choices - [which is just a poke at the hubby who thinks I am way too into handbags]... which I am not....  Cool)
