I got one of these beauties some time ago that, unfortunately, had lower spreaders that were in poor shape.

I'm at work and can't look at the kite. Does anyone know what Dick used for the LS on the SUL model?

Thanks.

Anyone have an idea what the proper LS rods are?

Thanks.

Not that common of a kite here on the Forum.

John Gillespie had at least one of them.

I'll send you his email.

Thanks, John. I know of a few Pizazz kites out there but I'm not sure if they're SULs or Stds.

IIRC it was 2PT, unless it was a Response Zero Gold SUL. I don't think he made too many of those though. I had one and wish I still did.

You have a good memory, Bill. I went home and looked at it again - they are SS Response Zero Gold.

BTW, it's number 86. Sound familiar?  Wink

Yep really.

And a nickel weighs 5 grams.  Huh

How were they named?

This is a Pizazz 3 and not quite an SUL:

If you mean labeled, "SkyShark Response Zero" with a yellow/gold ring around the spar near the tip.

Dick Barnes made the Pizazz, Razzamatazz, Pizazz Plus and A Little Pizazz.
The Razzamatazz was an approximately 3/4 sized kite, the Pizazz Plus was designed more for Team flying and had 4 stand-offs and A Little Pizazz was a 1/2 sized version that he taught at the Fort Worden kite workshop.

SUL, UL, Standard and vented. The SUL had two, the response zero gold ones and the 2PT ones. The UL had 3PT's and the standard 5PT's. The vents typically had 5PT's, but sometimes 7PT's. The vented had valley vents, wing vents and super vents.  There was also a vented UL. Vented kite framed in 3PT rods. I had most of the versions at some point.

He would basically build you any combo you wanted, although I never heard of a vented SUL :-)

See ya,
Bill
