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".

Steve knows my fondness for the Paradox and loaned me this purple fade Paradox from the Brian Todd Collection.

Unique to this Paradox (as far as I know) is an M-shaped trick line and telescoping inner standoffs like the Tricktail. I own the red fade and blue fade and mine have regular standoffs. The green fade belongs to Jose in Sunnyvale. Enjoy. The photos were taken with my little digital Elph 990 and air shots taken while flying the kite with Shane's flying handle. There's a little blur in a few of the photos.

Brian was an amazing flyer and collector.

On a separate note.... The Holey™ Rev is now vented in the yellow panels. Also the frame leading edge is a 4 wrap center with P200 ends. Flown today in 15 mph winds. I'm calling it a mid-vent and done with my experiment.

Gorgeous, John! That purple fade Paradox has the same color combination as the SoA Vibe I've been looking for.  Tongue

I've seen the Paradox in pics for many years, thought about trying to find one, but never saw any available except in the UK a long time ago. Now I know why, perhaps? Wink  Cheesy

I'm still hoping to come across one of these rainbow Paradoxes at a time when I have funds available.
