Giant Buble Tube:

Some fliers liked our Bubble Tubes so much, they asked us to make them longer. So instead of four stripes between each globe, we made nine. The result is a big splash of color, 45 feet long.

The Giant Bubble Tube works well as a line decoration, or a tail. We're asking $140 each. Sets of three are discounted 20% so mix them up!

And remember, customer colors don't cost extra!

Snake Tails

Snake and Corkscrew Tails:

You can't argue with simplicty! The 50 foot Snake is our most popular tube. And of course, we have larger sizes too! They fill up the sky in a big bold way.

Corkscrew or Snake, you can't go wrong. Snakes (upper right) have alternating black-and-white stripes. Corkscrews (lower right) use spirals of black-and-white instead of stripes.

The big ones are made from a black and white tube reaching 75 feet and finished off with another 25 foot tapered section in the color of your choice. The entire tube is 100 feet long and costs you $150 -- much less then the normal price of fabric alone.

Of course, three of them look really super...

Need something a bit smaller. We now offer 50 foot Snakes or Corkscrews, custom made in your choice of colors. They're the perfect add-on for any mid-sized lifter. Your cost is just $55.

Colored Snake Tail Tails

Don't forget that Snakes can be any color you want.

You don't have to use black-and-white. Mix things up any way you like or add extra colors. We can do red and white stripes with a blue end. We can do rainbow and black. We can even match your lifter kite.

The idea is to have fun and fill the sky.

Pine Cone Tubes:

Think of it as looooong line art.. Basically we took our six-spike Pine Cone and made it bigger.

Now you can order a Pine Cone Tube in any size or colors you want! We're priceing each pair of cones at $3.50. Six reach about five feet. So twelve are ten feet and twenty are, well, twenty feet.

    Star Tubes

    Long Star Tubes:

    Our single Star Tube was such a hit, we decided to go one better and offer a longer tube with the same design. You get six inflatable stars spread over a fifty foot tube. Looks great when the wind is working all 36 points.

    We're pricing the Star Tubes to move at $90 each. Try making one, and you'll agree it is a great price!

    Diamond Tubes:

    Our best looking tube yet! The unique pattern is labor intensive but well worth the effort.

    Diamond Tubes Diamond Tubes Diamond Tubes

    Each tube is made from four complimentary colors and contains over 100 pieces of fabric. The result is a delightfully complex array of color in the sky. We then finish each piece off with a tapered point in the final section. We can also make a six-color Rainbow Diamond Tube.

    Diamond Tubes

    Choose the convenient 20 footers for for $25, the striking 50 footers for $85 or the incredible 100 foot Diamond Tubes for $140. Pick up a set of three and we'll knock off 20%.

    Mega Tube

    Here is a huge tube tail. I mean really huge. At 200 feet long and 2.2 feet wide, this guy eats normal tubes for lunch!

    We'll "super size" any of our larger tubes -- the Diamonds, Snakes, Stripes, or Space Socks -- in any colors you like. The impact is enormous, and so is the fabric volume. To make a tube twice as long and round takes four times the yardage. Still, we'll offer "MegaTubes" for $350 each.

    Mega Tube??

    Mega Tubes need a solid lifter and moderate to fresh winds. This photo was taken in 4 mph with a Pilot 140.

    Transition Tubes:

    Check these out! The color emphasis changes over the length of the tube for a stunning effect in the sky. Think of it as a kinda patchwork, art-deco, eye-popping piece of fun.

    Transition Tubes Transition Tubes Transition Tubes

    Transition Tubes are similar in design to our flat Transition Tails. But with a tube you get a more flowing and hypnotic effect. Each tube is made from three complimentary colors and contains over 250 pieces of fabric.

    "Tran Tubes" come in three sizes. The standard forty-eight footer is $75. We also make a big ninety-six foot tube for $140. Our you can get the twenty-four foot "micros" for $35.

    All Transition Tubes are made-to-order and take about two weeks. Let us know what colors you want, or let us help you accent a larger deta or lifter.

    Racing Stripe Tubes:

    Sometimes more simple is more better... For years, our favorite display was a series of tubes in a bold color with a simple black-and-white accent. Susie says they look like racing stripes. Anyway, one day it occurred to us that we should be making them for you too.

    Striped Tubes

    Racing Stripes have five sections -- in any bold color you like. The sections are separated by three stripes. We usually make them black and white, but again can do any color you like.

    The tube tapers down to a point in the final section.

    We have the 50 footers for $50 and the dramatic 100 foot tubes for $130. And since a bunch of them look really cool, buy three and we'll take 20% off!

    Rainbow Space Socks:

    Our "Space Socks"are long tube tails decorated with contrasting balls. Hang them on your line or from a strong lifting kite, and fill the sky!

    The Standard Rainbow is 130 feet long with a front-end diameter of about a foot. It features twenty feet each of red, orange, yellow, green, blue and (you guessed it!) purple -- each separated by a black ball. Imagine how much fabric is involved!

    The half-size 65 foot Space Sock has a smaller diameter and uses ten feet of each color. And we also offer a Mega Sock with ten sections that stretches a full 230 feet.

    The Space Sock is manufactured exclusively for, and distributed by GKPI. Your retail cost is $220 on the 230 foot, $140 for 130 feet, or $75 on the 65 foot. Custom color combinations are available.

    We've seen all kinds of tricks used to attach laundry to a flying line. Most involve knots which cause abrasion and weaken line strength. Our approach is a lot more simple.

    We wrap small carabiners into the main flying line. Normally, three twists work just fine. When the line is slack, you can slide the"biner"anywhere you want. But when the kite goes up and tension builds on the line, the"biner"is locked in place.

    It's quick, easy, and doesn't reduce line strength.

    • Be sure you are properly anchored.
    • Be sure your flying line is sufficient for the load it is carrying.
