I've been using Shanti's 50# speed for quite a bit of light wind
flying with a Goodwinds Zephyr, Katana, Tracer, El Nino and found it
very nice for light wind work.. Usually I use a 50' or 35' set, but
have also used some 75' along with finger straps for better feel..
I've broken a few, too when a gust comes along, but the break has
usually been right at the knot (sleeved), so the set is only shortened
about a foot with retying the lines.. I use 30# dacron for sleeving
with the 50# speed.. Shanti's 50# speed is braided, and I didn't
realize that Fran had a braided product also.. I'll check that out
next call to High Fly.. I haven't as yet tried any of the spiderline..
