Prism Rainbow 75ft Tube Tail
The 75-foot Tube Tail is rainbow striped with a neon yellow tip for a mesmerizing show in the sky. These modular tails make a great add-on for dual and single-line use. They come in a handy drawstring pouch for easy storage and can be joined end to end for extra pizazz.
For new and stored tightly packed tube tails 3-5" diameter 50'-100', are nearly impossible to get to open. Before you wish to fly with the tail I would recommend soaking in water only (NO SOAP) the tail in a bucket with water at 120-130 deg.. Screeching and rubbing would be helpful during the wash 30-40min. Remove the tube and drain the water starting from either end. Using a leaf blower or reverse flow shop vac. blow air in the leading opening until dry. Store as loose as you have space for in your bag, do not compress until the flying season is over. Tube tails and bucket tails less that 12" in dia. are a challenge. This is why I like to use ribbon/streamer tails. They are flat and stackable.
I have been flying kites since 1975-present. Each year as I progressed on my skills flying kites and enjoyed it more I would visit KHK. Many of my kites are from KHK Duck store OBX and some are from master kite builders. Now I fly and teach kiting to K-12, and build kites for competition.
You may think kiting is a 'solo' sport, it is not. There are kite shows indoors and out for several fliers set to music that are just beautiful to see.
I invite you to to join the world of kiting from the North pole to the South pole, kites have been flown. It can be the most fun fun you have ever had at home and in your travels.

Quality and fun, works as it should,
We have the black, white, and green tail which is amazing but this rainbow tail is a significant eye catcher! Well constructed as all Prism gear is.
Perfect with the Quantum.
Product arrived in nylon sack very compressed, seemed to have been stored with something heavy on top of it. This resulted in a section of the tube constantly binding and not filling properly with air when attached to a kite. Cannot blame “Prism” as I own 2 other 75’ tails from them. I did send email asking for help or options and received no response. Windup is I have a tail that I will not use. Next time use Amazon.
Hello and sorry if we missed you - I remember your email and we did send a response but sometimes our emails get filtered out by email carrier spam blockers. These tails come this way directly from Prism as they are vacuum packed into that bag similar to how the original black and white tails come. You do need to fully inflate the tail once for it to open up completely and we have heard this feedback from other customers on the new condition being very compressed when you take it out of the bag the first time. If you can provide more detailed information on your purchase including a photo I would love to send it to Prism with our current feedback on these new tails. We do know that once you get it open and fly for a bit inflated it will not be an issue with the tube staying inflated. Please email any information you would like us to submit to Prism to email@example.com and please keep us posted once you get the tail out a few times to ensure the condition improves.
