Does anyone have replacement line recommendations for a Rev 1.5 SLE?
I bought the kite about 10 years ago. I’d only had it a little while when I took it to Port Arkansas,TX and was flying on the beach. While taking a break, a car drove over my lines and tore them up. I think they were trying for the kite, but only got my lines thankfully. Lacking lines, I put the kite away and haven’t flown since. However, I now have children that are old enough to begin flying and would like to start flying the Rev again with them.
I’ve searched but can’t find a good recommendation for replacement line. What weight, length and type of line should I look for?

I am a new flier.
1) I do not like the stock handles that came with my rev 1.5B. I want to upgrade to the snagless handles, but there are solid aluminum, anodized aluminum, featherweight stainless... What are the differences? What should I get?
2) I have SkyBond Premium Spectra lines, and they bind up a lot once you hit 4-5 twists. Is this normal? I was thinking of getting Laser Pro Gold to have as primary line with the Skybond as back-up. I know both lines have been recommended on the forum. Does the LPG fly better with less binding?
