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".

Place in bag, then shake the bag to inflate the sail within the bag.

So, tail-first into the sleeve?

[...] Yo-Yo stoppers on a Classic Illusion??

+ 1, That's a sacrilege !  Sad

And why not Yo-Yo stoppers too for a TOTL Hawaiian Team kite or a North Shore Radical ?  Lol !  Grin

If you do like JimB said with the Dacron line, it will allow you to adjust the leading edge tension. 

I'm sure you could yoyo an Illy if you had tail weights and yoyo stoppers, but why? If you're into yoyo tricks, why not fly one of the zillion kites that are good at yoyos?
