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".

That would stop traffic.  Nice work. 

I was cringing every time it rolled on the ground though.  I kept thinking, "Don't snag...don't snag....!"

Wow! How many square meters of material does that take to build?
Must be pretty expensive! And all those colours are beautiful!

I would also love to have one of those.

Another question about lines.
Is there a sort of anti-twist connection mechanism between the multiple lines and the main line?
Or is the main line getting twisted all the time?

Cheers!
