As a kid I flew a lot of Hi-Flier kites from 1962-1966 or so, and I'd love to
read a history of the company, with some description of the breadth of their
product line. I'm not a collector, but it would ideally be the sort of
collector guide you see a lot, with color pictures of the kites.
Does such a thing exist?
Here's one reason I'd like to see something like that:
Back in 65 or 66 I remember seeing a kid trying to fly a Hi-Flier kite that was
a 3-stick 6-sided flat kite, fairly small, named (I think) "Rainbow." I saw
such a kite only that once, and the kid who had it said he got it at a shoe
store when his dad bought him new shoes. It's things like that I'd like to read
about, and confirm or deny some ancient memories.
