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".

Chilese once wrote in one of his Kite Party webshots albums "Allen brings the same kites every year".

True, but it's funny how Chilese shoots the same pictures of them over the years. I guess we're old dogs.

This year I'm putting the old red Reactor and rainbow Prophecy in retirement and have a new blue Reactor and a new purple Proph. Lets see how John shoots them.  Smiley

The blue Reactor once belonged to JimB and as a Light with 3P frame he said it was his favorite of the series. I never really clicked with the Light, but the blue poly sail is gorgeous (this iPhone picture doesn't cut it). My old red Reactor Pro has a heavy nylon sail which has faded and is losing it's coating in areas. Hundreds of hours on that kite. The blue sail is built very light, with less robust reinforcements and LE tunnels than the standard. I've put the standard frame with all my mods into the blue sail and it's awesome. The sail is significantly lighter so I have the same strong, stiff 5P frame with less weight hanging from it. It's like my old favorite kite got turbocharged.   Grin
