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".

@chilese: After an hour of oogling that "2004" album, I'm still only half-way through it. Some of those Revolutions are simply stunning. I'd kill for that dual-headed Randy Tom. I've been a Nagel fan since seeing the Rio album cover back when I was a kid. And that rising sun Vader is just amazing. 


@st3307: Hell yeah that fits the bill! Man, I'm really liking a lot of these designs more than I thought I would. The reason I say that is it looks like most kite graphics use A LOT of rainbow elements and  contrasting colors, both of which I'm not really a fan. Normally I gravitate towards darker colors in almost everything I do.  Cars, clothes, bags, sneakers, my personal websites, even the way I decorate my living space. Yet, after my initial snobbery, I'm finding myself strangely attracted to some of the bolder kites after all. Smiley

@ainokea: Crazy! I don't think I've seen one quite like that before. Truth be told, I haven't really seen many kites in the the sky in person. Some of them I can't even imagine how they're able to stay up there in the first place.?!


KSC, I know it's not a dual line but it's a one of a kind made by Mr. Blue Moon himself, Ken McNeil.

Here's one of Randy Tom's original two girl Nagels.

I wish I still had this one, and it never flew, to this day. (I know the guy that owns it now)

Specifically any Limited Edition or discontinued stuff out there.

Let's see, front to back:-
Element - 1 of 50
DigiFury 85 Aerostuff - 1 of.... 5 ?
Fury 85 Aerostuff
Fury
Dot Matrix

All now sadly out of production since the demise of Carl's business, all one-offs with the Blue Eye motif. I'm not totally sure if any other of these kites were made with appliqué (the DigiFury is a little different, being a printed sail).

Pimp, I think you'll agree Grin

Speaking or rare, there is a Sano SSL (the ul sano) on ebay right now. If i didnt own a SSL, SSZ, Std Sano, and Spicas i would be all over it.
Paul wound down his kite making, such a shame

@ainokea: Beautiful! Wow. Sorry to hear it's not part of your collection any more. I can relate. I've had to let a few favorite pieces from my collection go a few years back, I've never fully recovered.

@CA Ike: Great stuff, man. I'm diggin' that Prism Elixer. What year is that from?

Pimp, I think you'll agree Grin

Totally!  Cheesy
What a great run! They look awesome together in the air! I'm such a sucker for muted color combos like that.

How about this:

One of 4 TOTL Windrules built for the WSKC in 1992.
Superlight wrapped carbon fiber spars and 1/2oz fabric.
