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".

Kent loaned his HUGE and beautiful Transfer xt.s vv to me for some photos.

It is industrial strength.

The L'Atelier website says that the kite is framed in 7PT spars.

Welllllll, the lower spreaders on this one say 8P  Huh

Are there any other P series rods out there I don't know of?

10 other photos surround this one:

They were developed for the Benson Airbow. They make a good spine rod for heavier wind kites too.

There is a mistake on the Atelier kites website.

The (little) Transfer xt.r VV is framed with Skyshark 7PT but the Transfer xt.s VV is framed with SkyShark 8P no tapered rod.

The xt.s is a big good truck !
