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'm pretty sure no one can stop you making things for you own use. If you started marketing them, that would be a whole 'nother story.

I hadn't heard of these before, and they look like a nice little project. And I should have the bits in stock to do it. How do you attach a line to it - none of the pictures online includes a bridle?

Word from Kathy Goodwind via (chico) Steve  is that she doesn't mind us making our own and requests pics if we do.  I already have some different graphic ideas.  There was a bigger size made at one time that supposedly didn't fly well at all but who knows the reason for that.

PM me your addy Steve and I'll just send you one of mine so you can see everything first hand.  The T fittings for the spreaders are going to be a bit of an issue.  The micro carbon FSD fitting I tried as a replacement don't flex enough to collapse the kite right.

Anthony ...
You need the "Mr T" fittings that Prism has used on their kites. Cost is about 50˘ each
I have 2 red/white/black sails if you want them.
