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".

My HQ Infinity which I flew today on its maiden flight for me , not exactly sure what happened but I have managed to loose one of the end caps that go over the Split Nock Ends . Its quite a large cap , im guessing 12mm ?
I dont suppose anyone has just the one spare hanging around they dont need ? Im in the UK .

If it is the little vinyl/butyl caps, go to your local hardware or auto store.  They are better known as bolt thread protectors or covers.  I know Lowes and Home Depot carry them here in the states.

And don't fret it in the meantime, most kites don't have them, many fliers add them to protect the nocks and to keep the flying lines from catching on the LE Tension lines. The kite will function fine without one or both, you could wrap a bit of electricians tape around the nock to protect it if you really felt you needed to.

I use shrink sleeve, it is lighter, tighter and because it is open at both ends doesn't promote moisture problems.

Never thought of that. Thanks for sharing
