It was a stunt kite that came out in '72. I believe Wham-O made the thing. The commercial had a kid on a boat letting the kite out behind. HTe neat thing about the kite was the handle that let out the lines. I would really like to find one, but so far, no luck.

I had one of those kites in perfect mint condition and when my father died 1984 my brother move to the house and never told me anything about throwing everything i own to the garbage ! I will never ever forgive him for doing that ! I could be easily be the only one to own one nowdays and in perfect condition !! It was a Yellow plastic handle shaped like this \_O_/ with a blue Reel in the middle with a knob to retract or release the bobin both lines at the same time ! I can easily re-create one with aluminum and some fishing reels today's technology ! Wow ! I have searched all over the net and nobody seems to know nor have a photo of this peculiar awesome handle !! How come nobody has re-release this awesome invention ?
