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".

Good day.
I'm new at stuntkites, so I need some help Smiley
I have HQ Atomic kite, but unfortunately I have lost one part of kite yesterday Sad

Lost part is one stand off spine, that connects to main spreader.
It was rip of the kite, but with no damage on material . Looks like the base fitting got to weak.

If I understand correctly , then I need small tube in diameter 3mm.
I have find on net connectors and end cups, but stop on choosing tube/ rode for them.

I live in Latvia and we don't have any distributors or repairs shops , so I ask for advice here .
If You can point me some links to correct items , it would be great Smiley

Sorry, direct links to The Highwaymen are not allowed - thief This might be of help; I'd assume they'll post to Latvia, but you can check that, of course.

By the way, you probably need a 3mm rod for the stand-off, not a tube (i.e. not hollow inside).

I don't know if it helps you, but if you can find a shop that sells radio control cars and planes then they often stock the 3mm rods. Rods are 3mm fibreglass 250mm long.

Age and cunning will always overcome youth and skill!

Here's a guy with an eBay shop from UK which stocks standoffs and end caps. I'm sure he ships to Latvia.
