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".

Reeealy short linesets


Currently, I am going through one of my long line flying phases, which is only worth doing in decent wind, hence the separate bag for Liberty State Park.

When going to Liberty, I'll often be out there all day. It pays to bring a few creature comforts, but it makes for a pretty heavy bag.

Repair items get short shrift in an attempt to (unsuccessfully) control the weight. Ari's Little Red Wagon or something similar may be on the horizon, in which case the weight will go through the roof.

This lot was crammed into an HQ Travel Bag until Today but; after breaking an alternate LS set  for the V Masque due to the crush, a change to a larger, external pocket, bag seemed prudent.

My local winds are so crap that longer lines are counter productive: the smaller the wind window the better. I rarely fly on anything longer than 60ft and often use 30ft. This bag is all about getting out for a quick fly: a light fast set up to maximize flying time with no dithering over what kite to fly and no extraneous bric brac to confuse the issue.

I have a short, four pocket, MLD that is currently evolving/morphing into a possible SLK/Quad/Dualie solution but the less said about that the better.

Currently the "A" bag is a soft rolling double ski bag and can take all the two liners that I own. Nearly 40 of them including the Force 10.
Never leave one that you might want to fly, at home!!
