Title: what size rods?
Post by: tommymcmillan on May 03, 2009, 08:46 PM
I was given an 12ft. delta made by: GO FLY A KITE,but it's missing the upper spreader I would like to buy a replacement rod for it,but I don't know the size of the rod that I need to order?

Hopefully somebody can say for sure, but a .414 glaspar would probably work (as used in 11' Premier Delta's), the .505 would definately do the job. 19' Premier Delta's use the next size at .615.

You want fiberglass rather then carbon.

Don't know if Steve has these up on the site yet but email him, he usually has them.
