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 have ordered a vented deep space from Tim Benson.
Eh ? Shocked

Please don't. There's a whole other section for those weirdoes but I think they gnaw through the fence.

2 lines good, 4 lines... better not.

Lol!!! Too Funny!! I'm just trying to be diplomatic Mike. I have more than enough on my hand with dual lines right now and am facinated with sport kites. I think I will have to feel that I have mastered sport kite flying before I moved on to something else but one never knows!

 I'll try to remember to post something after I fly it but I pobably won't have the kite in my hands for 3-5 weeks. He shared pictures of it with me and it looks like it is done very well. It has 18 small vent holes in the sail insted of two or so large ones.
 Can't wait!!

Gads, I didn't either! Might be just the thing for our bumpy gusty winds.

Bit more info on the Benson Kites FB page:

Full credit to Adrian Atherton for developing this and making it happen.
It has been tried and tested for over a year, and finally earned a place in the Benson Range.
Boring stuff now.....The vent holes are hot cut and reinforced with clear Mylar on the back of the kite.
Wind range is 8-25mph, ideal range between 12-20mph.
The frame is toughened up with P300 in the leading edges and spine, the tail weight is 18gms.


I flew the P200 version last year and really liked it.  I'm sure the change to P300 has only benefited it.
