WindPower Sports carries several different types of kite line high quality Spectra line for dual and quad line kites as well as inexpensive Dacron line used for single line kites and much more.
Spectra and Dyneema are trade names for high performance polyethylene fiber. The low stretch, low weight and a great strength to diameter ratio of Dyneema and Spectra line make them ideal for use with dual and quad line kites.
We have ready-made Spectra and Dyneema line sets for dual and quad line kites that included winders. We also carry bulk Spectra spools in tests up to 600# and lengths to 1000′ for those who like to make their own line sets.
Braided Dacron line is the most popular line for use with single line kites. Dacron is a polyester line that is inexpensive, durable, lightweight and strong. Dacron is not ideal for dual or quad line kites because it has more stretch, is not as slippery, and heavy than Spectra or Dyneema lines.
