Lovely stuff, Cheater! I wonder if your 'fishing line' guide was the inspiration for Clint Finger's 'barbed' jet flag as used at the West Hamley finals in '68? I could never believe Clint was smart enough to come up with that one by himself.

By the way, young son's current favourite school-yard joke-
Why shouldn't you play cards in the jungle? Because there are too many Cheetahs.
He is very young. But maybe that's why there aren't any slot clubs out there either. Or are there?

In my fading memory, wasn't there a ridged and inversely tapered guide flag commercially available at some point, the rationale being exactly as you describe, Cheater?
But great sentiments! I'm afraid I was too chicken to cheat in my club racing days, but all this ingenuity is fascinating.

NEVER bored with your stories, Prof! Keep them rolling. Make them up if necessary!
Gives an old UK club racer a little glimpse of the exotic lifestyles of the rich and famous. Well, relatively.
Wonderful, wonderful.
