  9. Prism E3 - Lower Spreader ARGHHHHH

    Does the LS push onto a ferrule or slot into a fitting? If it pushes on to a ferrule check the ferrule for a hard corner at it's end. Sand it to a round. You can wrap the end of the LS in cotton, plenty of wraps, and soak it in super glue. Give the LS a light sand first at that spot. If it pushes into a fitting stuff the LS tube with another smaller piece of rod. Again make sure that internal piece has no sharp corners on its ends. Glue it in. Mike

    The fabric is very light. Much lighter than Icarex. It does stretch a bit but since I am using it for gliders that is not an issue for me. It is a bugger to sew, easily ripped, and you only get one go with DS tape. It is a bit tricksy to work with and I think it is not cheap. If I was looking for very light weight material for a full size stunter I would think that very light grade Cuban would be what I would try. Again not cheap but you can sew it. For SSUL kites i reckon the rods, fittings, sail pockets and reinforcements are the way to get a light kite. If your really keen after you pare all that down the next step is sail material. Mike

    Another Hawk but this time in Orcon, many thanks to my mate Trev for the Orcon. Bit tricksy to work with but very light. Shaved 3 grams off the Icarex Hawk. Slower glides with the lighter weight. Mike
