Digging through my old Wipika FreeAir kite bag (circa 2002 or so?) I found a set of brand new lines on a reel, the kite must have come with a spare set of lines which I never used. They look quite similar to modern lines (spectra/dyneema/amsteel whatever the new stuff is called) but they feel a bit different - softer, more flexible (might just be wax or some treatment on newer lines?). Does anyone know whether these lines are in fact dyneema and whether it would be safe to use them on a modern kite?

yes it's dyneema/spectra go for it (as long as they were stored properly)
