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".

Mark E Mark,

If you have something to say, say it completely and directly.

Trident UL (red, yellow, black, fl green eyes):
It's supposed to be a 60s style superhero, but all the kids at the park call it the Spider-Man kite.

I wish I was as capable as the kite.   Roll Eyes

It always gets looks from adults and kids. Perhaps the kite snob police can be called in on this one JoE.  Grin

Mark E Mark,

Yes, it was your kite that I thought the earlier poster was thinking off. I wasn't absolutely sure though, and couldn't find a pic, so refrained from mentioning it directly. However, please be assured, I have no problem with saying it 'completely and directly'. To be honest, I don't think the colour scheme is that bad (though I didn't like it at the time) and probably looks rather good in bright sunlight in a blue sky (neither of which I see a great deal of). A very good friend of mine owns both a Talon UL and vented in much more questionable colour schemes.

P.S. I'm quite happy to be considered a 'kite snob' - I probably am.

That is such a true statement, I caught the same flack when I Posted my WM with those colors, But you know the kids sure do love it! Those Kids are the future of the sport. When I'm flying my Red, Black & White, No Kids, With this one I have all kinds wanting to check it out.

ohhh man ... I thought when Steve got rid of all the old content we got rid of all those pics of the ugly WidowMakers  Roll Eyes

Sorry John had to say it, ya' know I just joking, I'm the proud owner of two of the beasts myself and I never felt that one looked bad, now the other John's Trident ...
