Welcome to the GWTW Forum.
Guests (non-registered users) can view the forum but are unable to post.  If you don't have anything to say then why would you bother to register?
One of the most popular sections of the GWTW Forum has long been the Swap Meet.  A great place to sell old, seldom flown kites or to get great deals on used (gently flown) kites.  Only registered users can see the Swap Meet section, let alone wheel and deal.  1000's (literally) of kites have changed hands thanks to the Swap Meet.
There are several more benefits to being a registered user, but you'll have to join our little community to find out all the "secrets".

maybe carefully ream the inside of the connector with a 5/16" or 3/8" drill bit?

Start with the 5/16" and test fit as you go.

Funny, but I have found that passing the end of a spar through the hair can gather enough natural oil to make the rod slip in, and out with more ease.

Or rub the end of the rod on the size of your nose for even more natural oil.

Speaking from experience, chemo therapy can make the spar through the (long) hair a bit of a challenge.

Zeke - this is a great thought, with the Thanksgiving holiday over, I can look at drilling or sanding.
My kite hospital ( daughters empty room,) has patients in line, the 8mm issue is first in line.

stay in touch - you add so much to the GWTW site .
