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".

Dealing without a colorized is not an issue when you tell Ken what you've got on your mind. Its exactly what I was looking for. Ken sent a mockup and the results are fantastic.







Thank Ken!

I've always loved the Reprise and the Ichiban. I could never get management to approve the expense though.

That narrow white pinstripe between the red & blue on the main sail just throws that over top. Well done

Agreed Mike, I'm planning on you taking some pictures of it at WSIKF.
Adding the white was the big quest as Ken had in mind of keeping the main colors to two.  It was a collaborative effort to come up on how to add the white.  Ken came up with the pinstripe.  It adds several extra panels and some hours to the build.  Options = extra cost, but well worth it.  I definitely like the result.

Maybe tomorrow for the pictures. 
The Reprise arrived Friday afternoon.  Yesterday was dedicated to finishing our install of our drip irrigation system. Embarrassed  Today some more install, and then the thunderstorm. Lips sealed Lots of thunder for the last hour.   Huh
