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".

prism, hq (hq-invento), premier, and flying wings all sell good quality 'factory kites'. if you find a kite store selling dual line kites but doesn't have any products from any of those companies, they likely don't sell any good quality kites. you may find another quality brand or two sold beside those manufacturers, but if you don't see any of those, look elsewhere.

there are many small producers who create premium quality kites, also what we call boutique kites, which have a premium price tag with premium performance as well.

One more question, are there any prism kites or othe pro kites, that are made in china, selling for lower prise and are the same quality as original, or i should forget about any china thing? Cheesy ..

Stay away from "made in china" copies. - nowhere near the same build quality. You truly do get what you pay for in the kiting world.
