I broke my lower leading edge on my Quantum Pro SUL.

Do you know if this piece is the same on all Quantum PRO kites or if the 2PT is only used on the SUL?

I need to purchase quickly as there is a kite festival next weekend.

Also, when you order the 2PT does it come with both (i.e. 2) pieces so you have the male and female versions?

Don't know what they use in the std, but the 2pt is a pretty light rod, so doubt if that's it. When you buy a rod, it's usually full length (32.5") and unferruled. Prism may sell them cut and ferruled or not. Rods are often marked with maker and model, have you looked at yours? If you need to cut a new one, use a fine toothed hacksaw and cut the smaller (non ferrule end.

Steve here at GWTW should have the spec's and will cut it to length if needed with his high speed rod cutter, the fine tooth hacksaw blade is fine with care but on a 2 PT you run the risk that a small slip could crush or split the rod they are so thin, I save that for field repairs. Have you pulled yours? If it's the male end he'll send along a ferrell too, might even glue it in for you. Buy a spare while your at it, 2PT's while pretty tough are fragile it's nice to have one in the bag.
