Thanks.
It used to be 50x250 3M histart. Then I cut it to 50x200, then 50x150.
Then I got 50 feet 4M rubber and cut the line to 100feet.
Now, I mostly use a doubled 3M rubber at 25 and 50 feet of line.
LOL

I'm enjoying the low launches more. I wish I could handlaunch my Xplorer but you can see the field I fly at is all hard packed dirt. I have to learn to catch these things-- Fast!

Nice catch.
