Do the flags fade?
All things will fade in time when exposed to sunlight. However, you can buy high quality flags and windsocks made with Solar Max fabric that is UV resistant. Another alternative is to spray them with Flag Guard to help reduce fade.

I want to add tails to my kite, but I don't have any loops to put them on. How can I jazz up my kite?
For kites without tail loops, add tails to the line, commonly known as line laundry. You can add spinners, spirals, windsocks, tubes, or anything you can think of, provided the kite has enough lift to handle the load.

Is there an easier way to attach the line to the kite?
Yes, there are two ways to simplify the process and eliminate tying knots to the kite. One way is to attach a swivel to the line and clip it to the kite. The other way is to tie a loop at the end of the line and kite, and use a larks head knot over the knot on the kite.

Are stunt kites easy to fly?
Yes, after some practice and crashes. As with anything new, practice makes perfect, and once you get the hang of it, it is a lot of fun. We suggest getting a book or video on stunt kites. This will help tremendously.
