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

Like the new graphics, but understand that the original graphics were meant to evoke the jointed nature of arachnid limbs.

ATB,
Sam

Much simpler to sew the new graphics, the originals graphics and felled seams were very labor intensive. The broad seaming should help keep the price down. Looks like it got much better rub patch at the upper spreader too, the originals was a real weak point on an otherwise pretty nicely built kite.

Just talked to Jon and the first 100 in red should be arriving by the end of april or early may.  You can order here http://www.kitesandfunthings.com/ProductInfo.aspx?productid=66322   If you want yellow then you will have to wait a couple more months.

Yes the rub patch is a lot better too.  If you want to try it out Mike I have the first Red one (pictured in Johns photos) made in my bag now and you can either join us at our fun fly this month or I can send it up your way.   Chadster where are you located?
