This new, neon-yellow coating uses a polymer-alloy which bonds to the fibers and protects them from damage, yet remains slippery.
This amazing new coating also allows us to work with some new high-modulus polyethylene (HMPE) fibers. “High-modulus” is a comparative term which simply relates to a fiber’s strength-to-weight ratio. So a “high-modulus” fiber is stronger and lighter than a fiber with a lower modulus rating. Skybond has the highest modulus rating of any kite line we’ve tested. For example a 100 lb/test Skybond line is thinner than 90 lb/test Spectra, but it’s 10% stronger, and it costs about the same. That’s a good deal.
This set comes pre-sleeved and on a "Crazy 8" card winder.
