The LLE on my Deamweaver Masquerade somehow broke and I need to replace it. 

I can't tell what rod it is.  Can anyone help?

Thanks.

I have Masquerade #11 and still have the original paperwork that came with the kite. It lists the LLE as 3pt, 32.5" length. I don't know if there were any frame changes later on or not. That should be it.

Hmmm.  There must have been a framing change, because my LLE's aren't tapered.

Thanks for the info, though.

Anyone else?

No text on mine (a gift from JimB)  Huh .
Length 32.5"
Ferrule glued into LLE.
So I measured the rod in 3 spots and the numbers are around:
OD = .284
ID  = .244

I'm guessing P200.

It is the same kite. The submarine shot was part of my favorite kite shoot. Jim Byrne was kind enough to let me capture many memorable pictures. Months later, he sent me the kite. He is truly one of the good guys in kiting.

As a follow up and FWIW, I swapped out the rod with a P-200.  From an end-on glance, they looked similar.  It was certainly thicker-walled than a P-100. 

Now, if I can get some time to fly (and the wind will stop blowing 15+ with higher gusts), we'll see if it the kite seems balanced.

You might ought to switch out the other one too....just to make sure

I kick myself for selling mine, I wish I had it back...
