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".

If anyone wants to see a Freilein Windrider quad first-hand, I'll have one at the Whidbey Island Kite Festival this weekend.

Rev has done several different thing when it comes to customs.  There is the masterpiece series done by rev, designed by the likes of randy tom, Willie Koch and a few others.  At one time you could do your own custom sail and pay a small fee to rev for the name rights and there are those that bought revs and have made  modifications to the sail or new sails of their own panel design. IIRC Bazzer used to and maybe still does full custom revs out of your panel ideas.  As long as your not selling them it should be ok for you to make your own sail.

Willi has never done a rev....you are probably referring to Elliot Schook woven and mesh pieces...darn nice kites...

also, do not leave out that there are a couple of makers who are allowed to build also for Rev...i know that Martin Lester did the revs for the Decorators (iirc Carl Robertshaw did some as well? - and both of these guys have their own Masterpieces Revs too)...and the Gonzalez brothers do the printed ones as well...

I have a couple of Chinese quad line kites and a couple of Rev's.  I even tried to make my own (it does fly, but far from perfect) but it cost me more to make my own than it did to get one delivered to my door from china, and the Chinese one is built very nice. I would love a full set of b series revs, or even just the one, but just can't afford it.
I just like to see more kites in the sky, wherever they come from.  Even if the sky is full of 10 kites from the beach shop.
If anyone doesn't want to fly with me when I've got the Chinese kites out then that's up to them, but I would never judge someone for the kite that they fly
