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".

What is the recommended tesioning method for the Benson Inner Space?

1) "loop the line" at the knot through the tensioning groove and you're done
2) pass both lines through the groove and rely on the small knot to grab the groove
or 3) pass the lines through the groove and do a tie off knot simiar to many other kites

Just put a vinyl end cap over whatever method you use.

The cap will hold the line in place and keep the tip clean and strong.

I got the answer from the great Benson himself...   Wink

Hi Dano,
The cord should be pulled onto one side of the nock,
rather than through the middle as with most kites.
The loop on the end is for your finger to help pull it on to the nock,
if it's too tight you can use the upper spreader to 'lever' it on.
