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".

not a sport kite, but my flying wings laima doesn't fly or glide worth a crap. it's a totally useless piece of junk. it fails at even making a good paper weight. the wait was long for it to arrive, and the kite was a complete disappointment.

in our las vegas group, for gliders we have the iflite, wala, laima, bird-x, chiroptera, skate, manta, and the long way home. the laima stands alone in how bad it is. maybe i got a dud, but it makes me angry. if it flew as a single liner to paste to the sky i'd be happy but it won't stay aloft on its own for five minutes. grrrrrrr.

I think you might of got a dud......I like ours for tight spaces in the front yard........equates indoor too..........In higher winds it doesn't paste real well, though.......probably how you tune it..
