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".

Thank all for your replies.

There's definitely a compelling argument to try the AirX so I am just in the process of ordering some 600N and 500N from Bainbridge International.
According to the web site AirX also has a VMG version which is a medium to soft finish which might also be worth a try later on and for SUL theres a 400N VMG which comes in at 26gsm.

As Will stated colours are limited but the 600N has a choice of 11 while the 500N and 400N only has 3.

Has anyone worked with the Contender Nylite ripstop nylon 0.5oz?  "resin impregnated for stability and coated for zero porosity."  Sailrite has 3 colors by the yard - RWB.
