Hi all.  The vintage movement (in UK SAM35) has evolved an "official" size Hi Start for launching up to 36" gliders for those unable, or unwilling, to run. In the UK this is made of 7.5 metres of 1/8" free flight rubber and 22.5 metres of line (other SAMs may have different specs.) This works very well, though I've not yet tried it myself, and apparently in even a very slight breeze little tension is needed to get the model well up.  Good luck and let us know how you get on.  MarkM
