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".

Ben had this very nicely made UL framed in GF Skinny rods.

A LS had broken near the center-T, Steve and I were able to temp. fix it by gluing
a similarly broken stick inside. So we had the narrow part of another tapered rod
as an internal stint. The kite was returned to Ben who thanked us by handing the
kite over for a long term loan and evaluation.

The lower spreader has a metal hollow ferrule. There is no writing on the kite or bag.
For some reason, I think it's an older Level One prototype. Ben doesn't know its origin.

Any help from the Forum experts?

i would doubt Level One....
As I know there were two Ben's there I am guessing you are referring to Ben D, not Ben H (who has been collecting some kites as well)....
Going to guess that a call to Heads Up might help....
What is the skin? poly carb? nylon?

Kites kayaks & corgis again!!!
