I've been lurking for about a month now and have enjoyed everything
Since this is my first posting,I'll try to be brief. Ihave been
flying kites for over ten years and been a competitor on the east
coast (and other events) for the last five years. Most of my friends
and I have found that sleeving spectra line to be a waste of time.
I have not sleeved any of my spectra and have not had one
failure at the knot. If the knot of the line is the weakest, even
with sleeving,then why does the line almost always break about 5
inches from the Knot? Besides, if I am going to have line snap, I
want it to Break at the knot,and not in the middle!
BTW my line sets consist 80# line for my Scorpions to 300# line for
stacks of flexis and my buggy set up. I'd like to here from other
people who have given up the frustrating practice of sleeving
