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".

Here are some photos:

The Paradox, to me, is one of the best looking sport kites and certainly the best use of mylar.
The mylar really looks like an insect's wings.

Like most really physically beautiful things, the Paradox can't live up to its beauty.

It is heavy for its size by today's standards, and is more of a quick spin-based trick kite.

If you're going to be at NABX next year, Mr. Sabilino, I would be happy to loan you a Paradox.  Smiley

I always thought (and still do) the green fade to be one of the best looking kites - ever.  Loved the green when it was taboo to use green for a kite.

Never had an opportunity to see one in person, much less fly one.  If a nice used one came along at an attractive enough price would like to add it to the collection just for looks.
