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".

Wrote a few sentences scattered about several threads.
I flew prototypes of the standard and UL in January.

The Prediction would serve well as a team kite:
Large (2.4 meters = 7' 10.5")
Medium speed
Wide Wind Window (www)
Precision without being sluggish in turns

As a bonus, once you unlearn weighted kite tricking, the Prediction is surprisingly tricky in a slow, graceful manner. Trick inputs have to be much more like those for the Mongoose, another excellent kite. I was able to roll it up without weights, although there were no yo-yo stoppers on the prototype.

Wrote a thread about overlooked, lower priced kites which included the Infinity, Prediction and Soul. The Prediction and Soul aren't made by the regular Flying Wing staff. Rather they are made by Bell's personal crew, or so I've been told.

The graphics are a bit busy, but they grew on me.

Although I've no personal experience of the Prediction, if, as John says, they are made by Bell's personal crew you can bet it's going to something special. I have a Soul which is an exceptional kite, one of kitings best kept secrets that deserves much more credit. Finish is first class too.
