Hello all,

Anybody know the size of the upper leading edge spar of a Prism Fanatic? I have the good and broken ones, so I could measure the length, but no way to know what diameter.

I believe the Fanatic uses .196 pultruded carbon for the leading edges and .220 for the lower spreaders.

Thanks all!  Smiley
Now I need to see where I can order a pair with not too much shipping. Once I ordered a couple of spars for a New Tech Maxima and ended paying more shipping than on the actual spars.
Already have the ferrule, just need to got the broken soar out.
