Hyperkites - Rip Stop Nylon Tails
My name is Ray Miller and I have been flying Hyperkites for over 25 years. I used to get Hyper Tails from "Randy Tom" and now I can't find him or the tails.
Do you know where I can purchase Hyper Tails, 3/4 Oz Ripstop 1" wide by approx 30-40 ft in length for an assortment of colors?
I have hundreds of kites and I need assistance if you can help.
The place to go, online anyway, is kitebuilder.com
Check out this link, which lists rolls of 1 inch, 3/4 ounce nylon ripstop in a variety of bright colors...
You will have to cut the tails to length, but I think you will find the price to be well worth it.
It does seem that "Randy Tom", the designer of the original Hyperkites has long been out of business. It also seems that there are plenty of Hyperkites enthusiasts still fly stacks of 12 or more of these classic and easy-to-fly stunt kites!
If you have been looking on the Web, I guess you have already come across the YouTube video of a 30-kite stack being flown at Fort Collins...
Impressive! And that was not long ago, in April 2011. Uhhhmmmm... that's not you is it? ;-)
