1200-1500#
hope you are not planning on flying it too high!

rob103:
Ouch! And here I was thinking my 300# dacron would do

thief:
yeah....a flyer in Newport used to fly his sun oak dcs with lots of line laundry on 500# and those are only 14'....
Plus you want to have some thickness to that line so that you can handle it well (albeit by hand or by mechanical bits).....

Not even close.  ::)   I fly my 19ft delta on 500lb line in lighter to med winds.

Good new is you can and SHOULD  use shorter line length. 200 - 300 feet.
  - Allows you to get the kite down quickly. Problems can happen QUICK with large kites.   
  - Your big kite looks small when you put it up high on longer lines.  :-[

You need to consider some type of anchoring system as well.
