Single Line (line) Question

Post by Andrew »

What is a good strength & length of line for a Gomberg Kites 11ft Ghost Delta?
Also, any brand or type of line suggestions?
Thanks

I have three of those and I've flown them on 500# which was way overkill and 200# which was fine in the light wind I flew in. They dont pull very hard. So, Photomom's hubby's line sounds like a good compromise.

The 250# line sold by Kites and Fun Things would probably be just fine:

Did you fly them as a stack? Did you need to cut a hole in the sails for the line to pass through?

I intend to, but haven't gotten round to it. I dont know what it will take to stack 'em.

Bought them last year when Dave was going out of business. Have flown the white one and the yellow one single, the purple hasn't been out of the bag yet. Not great colors for a stack anyway.
