I'm considering changing up the frame on my Sano SS for a little bit lower wind range.  I know most of the specs with the exception of the standoff and upper spreader diameters.  I know that the SSL uses a 3mm outer standoff and a 2.5mm inner standoff. Can anyone tell me what Paul framed the SSL+ with?  Thanks!

Sano SSL+Frame: (please fill in question marks)
LE - P1X
Spine - P2X
LS - 3pt black diamond
US - ?
Outer standoff = 3mm
Inner standoff = ?

I'll check it out when I get a chance, Stephen.........I can tell you though, without a doubt, that leaving the upper spreader and the inner stand-off the same as on the SS will not have too much of an effect on the kite's flying characteristics. All of SSs will go down low..................

Thanks for the replies.  I did see the framing specs for the SSL floating around the internet.  I am curious as to the exact specs of the SSL+ only because I'm a bit of a perfectionist. 

Thanks!

I'm a patient man Jim, I have faith that you'll find your SSL+.  Ironically, the youtube video is where I discovered most of the frame specs (with exception of what i'm looking for... inner standoff and upper spreader diameters.)

Paul's website has unfortunately been down for a while... makes me sad.  Oh well.  I think I do have Paul's aerostar email address around here somewhere, but not sure if he answers that mail anymore.

If all else fails, I'll frame it as close as I can get.  THanks for checking for me though!

Okay Stephen,
It wasn't that tough to find after all.  Conveniently in a Prism speed bag marked Aerostar, LOL Shocked

The inner stand - off measures slightly over 2mm and the Upper spreader is about 4.5mm (approximately 3/16") and measures 19 5/16 " long.  BTW there is a sleeve similar to a shink wrap at each end of the upper spreader to keep it in the fittings.

That's about the best I can do and we must consider that the calipers I'm using are from the turn of the century (20th, ie) that I inherited from my grandfather about 45 years ago.  I had to transfer over the dimensions to a tape measure as the calipers are in inch and you can't read the markings anymore.

With my +2.75 reading glasses I can assure you that these measurements are close  Cheesy

Thanks so much Jim!  I believe my Sano will really enjoy loosing a little weight.
