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".
Questions or concerns? Contact Steve ... just drop an email to: forum.gwtwkites@gmail.com

Because you will break the center-T on all trained kites.

All sport kites when flown by themselves are supported at 5 points.

So when you train them, the center-T of each kite must be supported,


Not positively so in every case.........We have a ten stack of Microns (second generation) and only # one is supported at the center tee because of the bridle........All nine others are linked with four lines apiece at the upper and lower spreader attach points........Have flown it in 20 MPH winds and nary a problem.......I agree though that heaver kites do need more trussing for to keep them from wobbling and the inevitable death spiral that would result.
The Micron stack comes from Prism with a center tee stack line.  The Prism website pictures show the center tee connected.
