flown with a cotton thread that is about 3X thicker than standard sewing machine thread. THis is the type of flying line typically used when flying for fun and personal enjoyment. But when in cutting 'battles' that same cotton line is coated with pulverized
glass, called 'manjha'. Manjha is also called cutting line.
line is just that....it cuts the opponent's flying line, which
releases their kite. When your kite line is cut, you loose
you fly in a traditional fighter kite battle using manjha, typically you
are hoping you won't loose your kite by having another kite flyer cut your flying line!
