    Found - AVIA Gforce UL

    To get those stubborn ferrules out heat is the go. Heat the spar with a lighter till the bond breaks then whip the ferrule out, spar is roo ted but the ferrule is ok. Got this tip off Leong, Ceewan.

    Consider them yours. By the way, one of the spars already has a ferrule. I'll mail them off to you tomorrow. I presume you're still at Croydon? ...and FYI, I have a stock of Skyshark spars in pretty much all sizes if you ever go down that path

    Found - AVIA Gforce UL

    G'day Kevin. Thanks for the info, It certainly does help. If I could purchase the 'G-Force UL at 76cm' from you that would be amazing. As for the 7.3mm ferrule to join them, I am going to attempt to extract the ferule from this broken spar. (not sure on my success though) failing that though, it looks like that 7.3mm would be available through an arrow supplier, I found one listing on amazon, that sells 7.3mm OD arrows.https://www.amazon.com/SinoArt-Feathers-Press-fit-Replaceable-Targeting/dp/B07D6MH1BL so possibly could be used. Thanks so much for the info about the sky shark also. I think that sky shark 5pt is the way to go if I am to replace both leading edges as this seems the best and closest fit the these AVIA spars. I have found them here https://www.kitesandfunthings.com/Products/Sky-Shark-Black-Diamond-Tubes__BDSERIES.aspx also, I definitely need to get a set of vernier callipers. As eyeballing these sizes with old eyes just doesn't work again mate, thanks for your info and help. Doug

    I've got a pair of used G-Force UL at 76cm long, three at 68cm, and two at 66cm. If these are any use, you are welcome to them. A full length (82.5cm) G-Force UL weighs about 16.5 grams. Large end O.D. 9mm, I.D. 7.4mm. Small end O.D. 6.5mm, I.D. 6.0 mm. Ferrule size 7.3mm hollow carbon tube (no idea where to get that any more!) A Skyshark 5PT weighs 15 grams.

    Thanks Michael, I have sent a few emails, seems AVIA is now defunct, ill see what replies come through after the easter break. another avenue might be Michael Richards up in Sydney, but he is in NZ on holidays till next month. http://www.kitesandfunthings.com have a huge range of stuff. I may have to bight the bullet and re-spar the kite with a different rod. I will keep trying and see what comes up

    Found - AVIA Gforce UL

    Hi guys, I am looking for a source of AVIA Gforce UL spars, or something similar, (and ferrules) these are wrapped tapered rods, from the leading edge of an MEFM. I do not have callipers on hand to measure, so have eyeballed it using a $2 tape. I have read that sky shark nitro would be a suitable replacement ? just looking for input from anyone that has replaced these. regards. Doug.

    Buggy, Kite & harness for sale

    Peter Lynn Competition XR+ buggy with “midi” 16 x 6.50 - 8 tyres and User Manual. $850 Zebra Kite Z1 3.4 sq metre and Instruction manual. $380 Peter Lynn Divine buggy seat harness, medium size. $175 Peter Lynn Bullet wheel spreader bar. $65 Peter Lynn tow line.$21 Peter Lynn buggy splashguard. $34 The buggy and kite were used for a brief session on one day on grass, as new condition. The harness combination has never been used, it is not faded, it’s an effect of the lighting. The harness, spreader bar, tow line and splash guard were imported, they are not available off the shelf in Australia. Although in as new condition, I have discounted the buggy and kite prices. The harness and spreader bar are at cost, but you save the shipping cost from Europe. Get all you need from one location, save time and money to get started. Located in North East Victoria, can deliver within 3 hours of Bright. $1500 for the complete outfit. Offers considered.

    You managed to cover just about every form of land/wind sports in one video! Impressive. What was the 3 wheel thing that looked like a trike at the start?
