    • Hello, and a line question
      200# line is good for a Power Sled 24 in light wind... under 10mph... but I would never fly either my UltraFoil 15 or Power Sled 24 on less than 300# line in winds 10mph or more. You might be thinking X number of pounds of static pull, but you have to take in to account the... I don't know what you;d call it, jerk strength.... the momentary jerk that uneven winds exert on a kite and it's line. That's what broke the 300# line with my Power Foil 24, was a gust, I guess. Who knows, it was a result of an approaching front that grew out of control before we realized what was on top of us. Yeah, my mind was blown that 300# line failed. The kite was lost for good, I sprinted after it, and probably covered over 1/2 mile before I gave up on it.  I had to do without my trusty lifter for a few months, but my family replaced it for my next birthday, so it's now just a distant memory. I wonder who found the lost kite... I wonder if they knew what to do with it... It would be funny to see it in the air someday.  Like I said, I was lucky, I had my GoPro up there with the kite at the time, the line broke above the camera, and the camera fell straight down, at least 100 feet into the sand. Got the camera back, and still works to this day. But... I always use too strong a line for any kite in whatever the wind is.
