Guys, I apoligize that this post is not exactly kite related but I am looking for a particular type of string. I think it is called spectra but not sure.. The line looks like a braided fishing line but it stretches several inches with ease (like twice it's lenght) and has approximately 30lb test if that helps in the description?? Do you kite users use such a line and if so where can I get some and what is it called? Thanks for the help my email is mbucca AT comcast DOT net if you prefer to respond to my email. Thanks for the help.

Spectra does not stretch that much.. 3% is generally max. 0-1% is prefferable.

Not sure what you're speaking of, but most kiters dont like stretchy line. It's very dangerous! (snap.. WHAP.. lost an eye)
