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".

for super long things i have shipped kites in the fluorescent light tube boxes....ask your local hardware store if they happen to have one of the 8 foot boxes left....then you can easily cut a side off to make a triangle shaped box and cut it to what ever length needed.....

USPS says:  Max. length 79", max. length plus girth 108" for Canada, so you should be good with a 72" tube/box as long as it's not too wide.

whatever you do... dont send it courier! - brokerage fees on an odd shape and that length will be robbery.
