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".

Laser Pro Gold is the be best line in my bag.I have shanti speed line
 
and berry blue a also.

I make my own line sets and Lpg has less stretch than the others and the stretch
factor is very important to me and Lpg has MUCH less stretch when Im leaning back setting my lines.

Not saying the other lines are junk,I fly them all but in my hands Lpg is the cream of the crop.

Has anyone tried ES/55 blue line (not berry blue)?  So far, I've used LPG (stiff, low stretch, so-so slickness) and Berry Blue (a bit thicker and a little more stretch).  Just looking for a good, inexpensive line since these 120' quad sets are getting kind of expensive ....
