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".

Everyone knows that May is really July in kite speak.
Perhaps I should have said Tuesday ...

The main thing I'm concerned about is it's cutting power.  Small diameter lines can cut through objects faster.  Al Hargus tested the theory on pigs feet with kevlar and spectra.  I can only imagine some family setting up under some inexperienced pilot's lines and getting a nasty cut from the lines.

Spectra and Dyneema are the same or very similar substance (ultra high molecular weight polyethylene) made by competing companies.
