I have a kite in transit that the label sewn to the le says "Spectra Sports tm" and "1990 Spectra Star"
I've seen various kites by a company called "Spectra Star". Did they make Spectra Sports kites?

Yes, if I recall correctly these are evolutions of the same company.  I've looked up the trademarks and found some cool info on when they started the companies and also when sadly they Section 8'd them.

Wow! That's a bunch of info! Looks like I found a version of the "Slingshot". Sewn logo, not screened on sail. I'll put up a pic when I get it.

Cool, I would actually like to see what sewn in logos looked like back then.

From what I see on the material you posted, we may have a good line of progression in Spectra Sports Kites between our collections... 8)
