Kite String – 50# Test

This is the perfect string to use on your balloon flights to connect your balloon, parachute and payload together.  It’s lightweight and at/below the 50 LB threshold specified by FAA regulations.  It will hold together strong enough to last throughout your flight, but it’s still weak enough to break it if you need to yank your payload out of a tall tree.  Pro Tip:  Apply Super Glue over any knots you tie to ensure they don’t come undone during flight!

  • In the Breeze item #3425 – 50LB X 500 Foot Kite Spool!
  • REACH NEW HEIGHTS with this extra long, 500 foot, line. The spool is loaded with 50 pound, durable, twisted polyester kite line.
