  1. Wonderfull post rxburner. Thanks for staying on topic. I too like the Unicorn for the same reasons. It's good looking art. I had it planned when I decided to try for the Rational Kite project. Which is when I thought the other logo's might have more impact from the Rational Thought point of view. What kind of kite shape do you think would be most apt for it? I'd like to go for an un-common shape myself. (instead of a basic Rok I mean). Cheers, T.

  6. Great post Bob. I know I always go with the overkill on line strength. Frankly, I'm paranoid really. I also never hold my kites. Well, very rarely. I always stake them, so I can fly more kites I even stake my Eddy kites that only has, what? 2 lbs of pull? and I fly it on 50 lb line. As for Kevlar line. I have some kites that's I've built that I value very highly. As such, I only fly them on overly strong, Kevlar cored line.
