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".

I use to have a Transfer XTR, I loved this kite because of its presence in the sky, it's one of the nicest looking kite. You can really progress in freestyle with this kite but you really need to have big long arms, it's not a super easy kite... But then I got a R-Sky NSE... and I realized how superior the NSE is, really a few steps ahead... more precise, WAY easier in freestyle, the main difference with the Transfer is that you always have control over the NSE whatever its position and configuration in the sky, it's just unbelievable... Super precise, you can learn all the freestyle moves you want because you know the kite can do it... The only thing is that the NSE is a bit smaller and doesn't have the same presence in the sky if you fly with very long lines...

I bought a Std and "Unleaded" when they came out. RandyG and I used to snap up all the new kites as soon as Steve could get them in a few years ago. I still have them and don't fly them nearly as much as I should. I always have a great time flying them.

RandyG got some video of he and I flying ours right after we got them. It's still one my favorite videos he ever did along with a video of us flying our Vipers. The good old days, remember Randy!! ; )
