    • i named that pigtail. may be loop, may be extension. how long is easy to do and cheaper the name is not important  
    • i love Skybond, i have 2 sets of 120 and on 2 years no stretch on them except after first fly. that yellow is visible on any terrain i flayed and even they show some wearing they remain slippery.  with LPG i had some bad experience, trying to untangle the lines i had some bad knots because of dried grass or small twigs caught in at landings or in parking 
    • kites you want to use for train are identical ? if yes connect the line at the intersection of the two spars or depending of case from the spare what is keeping the shape 
    • my experience is only with LPG and Skybond, I use both in different environments one is like flying on wires (nice if you don't want to snag the floor, crap or dirt indoors or out).  but doesn't hold it's slipperiness as long, throw and catch + the rest of the 3D stuff & shorter lines, = LPG gold 90# The other is TWICE as slippery on day one and every day thereafter too.  It has a "softer hand" though, it is thinner in diameter and more visible (unless you are flying on beige soil&yellow clay), team flying or long lines cruising = Skybond 50#, 100#, 170#  
    • SLKs are not my thing (yet?) so I'm not the most suited to giva any advice here unfortunately. However without a set of good quality photos that describes the parts involved in the problem-to-be-solved, the chance of getting good answers from anyone is reduced. Without any more details it is likely that you'll get only general answers.  An attempt to help out:
      If you could deviate from the condition that you only could connect to one point on the previous kite (as expressed in the above ASCII graphics), there would be the common dual line stack way (the only way that I've tried). The typical way to create a DLK stack would be to connect the bridle attachment points to each other, thus reducing the load on the frame of the first kite. If the first kite still would have a too weak frame, a stronger frame (with or without a sail) could be put before the first kite. In the below image you can see the yellow lines connecting the two kites.
