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".

[opinion]

The Zero is tricky the way a 4D is tricky, to fly it forgo any 'known inputs', these kites IMO lead no where.

That being said, I spent time on both of these kites and when they 'click' they're a complete blast in 0-1mph, you will be moving, and they both glide well under control, I like the Zero and I think there's benefit in learning a different way to fly, FWIW it will stay in my bag. but Undecided, it's not 'that [holygrail] kite'  Cool

The Soul is an excellent kite, not just an excellent kite for the money.

It is a standard however, not a light wind kite.

The Soul and Prediction are my 2 favorite kites by FW.
