A friend of mine has a New Tech Desire UL and it needs new bottom spreaders.
I've got replacement spars, but don't know the finished lengths... anyone have the measurements?
I've tried looking around the New Tech site, but couldn't find much information.
Thanks!

OK, got the bottom spreaders done, but the top spreader that he has looks short, it's 46.6 cm
Can anyone confirm the correct length?
thanks!
