Good Morning!
I have everything for my Axworthy ghost. Except the line to put the ghost on. I have seen several tutorials and most use fishing line of 150 pound weight. I can not find that anywhere by me!
Is there anything else I can use that will work well or is there another strength line that you all like and works well. Thank you so much. I absolutely adore this site!

I got some 400lb test Kevlar spear gun line for mine from Spearit.com. I hope I have enough time to get it set up this year.

I have not had a chance to run mine, but it is on a sewing machine motor with Spiderwire for the cord. Wanted it up for this year, but real life apts are going to have me out of town for over a week.

Thanks everyone!

we were going to use an old polisher that hubby had lying around but cant get the bike wheel to attach to it sooo...we are on to an extra router he has that I can use. I have a speed controller just for a router that I bought and if that doesnt work. Well...I have a wiper motor coming this week also. Lol...I wanted to try and plan for any contingency we might run into!

I've run a sewing machine motor with a speed control for the last 3 years, works great. I bought a goodwill jogging stroller, using the 3 wheels for my rotation points and running 2 styrofoam skeleton skulls covering in plastic drop cloth. I went to H.D. and bought a few feet of 1/4" clear tubing in the lawn mower section to connect the motor to the stroller wheel, it seems to fit in the small groove that came on the end of the motor. I connected the two cut ends of the plastic tubing by taking suture and stitching them together. Good Luck

I have smoked a sewing machine motor with my AxWorthy. I too have moved on to a wiper motor I also got from Fright Props. Shoe polisher motor will not have enough torque.

1988 to be exact and he actually called it his the “ghost flight system”. It was later dubbed the Axeworthy flying ghost in his honor.
