Can someone supply the upper spreader dimensions (length and thickness) so I can order the rod (stick) from Fly Market. Even just the type of rod of course so I can then order it and cut it down to size.



Thanks

L'Atelier responds:

Hello John,

The top of Xtz is made from 6mm carbone tube, 37,5 cm long.

We can ship one or two but considering the shipping cost, it makes more sens to buy some carbone in USA.

Up to you, just let us know.

JPL: This equates to 0.234" X 14.75 inches. Just thought I post it here as FYI.

As suggested Kites and Fun Things will have this carbon rod for me to cut down to size.


Kind regards,

Ah, well, if the top spreader is just carbon (Ramlal, it would be helpful if the Atelier website said that. When I looked, it says all the spars are Black Diamond Nitro) then I've got that.

Just for the record ... of all the High Wind Kites I have flown I remember the NYC pilot on this channel recommended this kite to me as a great high wind flyer several years ago. Maybe R-Sky or someone else has come up with a significant greater high wind flyer? ... if so you can PM me on your choice or post it here. Not to say I am going out there and buying but will keep it in the back of my mind. If you get a chance try this kite in 15 mph winds or so with 175# or 200# line ... you may be surprised ...  Wink Wink Wink

BTW ... high wind for me is anything over only 10 mph ... after 15 mph the sand comes up on my beach and my legs just can do it anymore ...  Embarrassed Embarrassed Embarrassed

Whatever ...

The Transfer xt.z Upper Spreader is Structil 6 mm. Black Diamond are tapered spars...  Wink
