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".

While over here at Bodega Bay, I met a kite flyer that asked me a few questions, one was if any of my kites lower spreaders were extremely tight to insert intothe T, I looked at him with a question mark on my face and showed him some of mine, told him to bring it out and I would look at it this was the tightest I have ever come across, my question is that normal for this kite, we sanded the inside of the T so he was able to actually able to get it together
Thanks John

Not really normal but easily corrected with a drill motor, the right size drill bit and some reaming.  Proceed one bit size increase at a time so not to over do it and create a sloppy fit.  Can also use a 1/4" round file with sharp teeth.  If this is your first time, take the spine out of the kite so the sail in not in peril!
