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 just found a stray lineset marked 50daN X 25m.  What strength does 50daN equal?

the easy answer is it's 112lb line.

dekanewton or decanewton (daN) is a metric unit of force measurement.

1 kg = 0.981 daN

1 kg = 2,205 lbs

=> 50 daN = 112 lbs

Duhhh, decanewton.  Why didn't I think of that?  I even took a physics class a couple of years ago.  I was thinking it was some foreign language thing.  Thanks to all who answered.
