Thumbnail Filmstrip of Kite/Balloon: Spools of Line or Spindle as Separates @ 3000' - Choose Type Images
DescriptionExtra spools of 3000 foot lengths of line for the Exclusive Western Sporting Spindle.
Note: We suggest the Spectra line is only used for balloons as it is very lightweight. It is very thin and can cut a person if not handled with gloves while under a load such as when used with a kite. Dacron is the best choice for kites and this spool allows for changing out different spools easily.
1) 80# Dacron with a line weight of 1.3 lbs $39.95
2) 100# Dacron with a line weight of 1.8 lbs $44.95
3) 80# Spectra with a line weight of 0.4 lbs $99.95
4) Empty Spool for your own line. $21.95
5) Western Sporting Spool & Spindle for holding your own line. $69.95
Our spools contain 3000 foot of line. Over time pieces of line will be removed as the line near the kite or balloon wears. The extra line on our spools guarantees that there will always be plenty available. The falconer should keep in mind that the flight angle of the kite and balloon are affected to a large degree by how much weight they are carrying. The load placed on the balloon and kite should be kept to a minimum. As an example, a 5.5 x 5.5 round sphere balloon will lift 3 pounds at sea level. Obviously, the weight a kite can carry in a stronger wind will be much greater.
