Are you talking about the Speed Wing from the book "Stunt Kites to Make and Fly" by Servaas van der Horst and Nop Velthuizen? If so, I've got that at home and can look up the measurements. Let me know if this is the correct model.

Well, just in case you need confirmation. Here are some diagrams from the book. Line Y goes from Nose to Spreader through the ring and clip and Line Z goes from opposite Spreader to clip.
