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".

Trickier to get your hands on than a bar of soap, rarer than hen's teeth, more anticipated than The Second Coming*.....

A customer review of Chris Goff's SuperFly.

Mike,

Began my long overdue journey of trying to understand the Superfly's characteristics and little quirks but one thing that I found interesting was that the amount of leech line tension affects the trick feel a lot. Could be that the trick line not only tensions the tail but also changes the curvature of the trailing edge

Just for fun I totally loosened the leech line, zero tension. Kite become slow as a truck, loud as a bee and it is extremely precise! One surprising aspect that I really enjoy.

More to come, especially on playing with the adjustable center tee.

Keep coming please.  I always wondering what adjustable center 'T' means, how it is achieved and, how it affects the kite's flying character.  A few close up photos will be very helpful.  D

Not too surprising.  Cool This is the case with most kites. I mostly prefer to fly most of my kites with a loose sail.

It doesn't.  Chris designed it with yoyo stoppers and that's the way Tim will be producing it.
