Looking to carry some spare parts for my Skyburner Freestylist Std. which nocks would I need to buy? The kite uses P200 tubes which have a I.D. of .244"
Going to order from this page: Link to another retailer removed - Mike

Going to order some 7mm clips also.

                                                        Thanks,
                                                              Aaron

A couple of Prism end nocks and vinyl endcaps will work IMHO if you are using the E2 - E3 or Blue Moon wing tensioning method. 
Ask Steve, our kind host, he will help you for sure, also on  alternative solutions

Thanks for the response.
I ordered (2) 6mm and (2) 6mm with inserts, Im guessing the inserts are the small posts that connect the nock and leading edge together. They were inexpensive, so I ordered more vinyl caps, and c-clips to complete my $5.00 order. Cheesy

I'd suggest you order from this page:
 http://www.chicokites.com/store/index.php?act=viewCat&catId=30
Give Steve a call if you have any questions about which ones to order for your kite.  Wink

Bummer, Steve will usually put a few small parts in a padded envelope, shipping = the cost of a stamp.

Oh well, live & learn   Cheesy

Thanks guys. Its ok the cost of the parts is minimal to what I use to spend on my RC racing. I want to keep some spares on hand for these two kites. These I feel are the best flying kites I own to date.


Sorry for the link, I did not think it would be a problem since I was asking for answers for which part was the right one to buy

if you have to the knocks any sporting goods store that has archery supplies works on the p series rods.  PRetty much all prism kites use standard arrow knocks. Hq nocks work but need an insert (.2400 ferrule)

You can use some of the Prism E3 (or E2/Zephyr) end nocks.  Those are plastic nocks that fit perfectly inside of P200 rods.  No gluing necessary as they have small tabs that press into the inside of the rod to keep the nock in.

Other than that, use some standard 2400 nocks with a 2" piece of solid .240 carbon glued into the nock.  This will slide right into the P200 for a fairly smooth fit.  This method also makes it much easier to replace your lower leading edge if the need arises as the nock is not glued into the rod.

Moonie nocks also work well.
For future reference ...
For small orders such as this postage would run about $2.  Best way to make that happen is to drop me an email and I will make sure you get the least expensive shipping available.
