I was at a music festival over the weekend and had a few noobs yanking the lines. Smiley
Unfortunatly a spreader broke on my Sea devil STD Cry
IM assuming its 3pt but i thought id just ask anyway.

IM wondering if anybody knows what a STD sea devil has for spreaders?
The logo on the one that broke looks ancient and doesnt have the specific weight.

Also since the spreader im replacing is def pretty old should i replace both maybe?

Thnx!!!  Cool

If its the standard, I am guessing 5pt, but 3pt also works fine there in lighter wind.   I feel that spars, like wine, should not be used up before their time - just keep flying until they break.  If I had to guess, I would bet some serious $ on the 5 pt.  Then again, those are very hard to break.

But, in the future, let them fly one of your Silver Foxes!  Smiley

A standard most likely has 5pt spreaders. Even my SD light has 5pt spreaders... MAybe it's one of Lam's secrets, because my FL SUL has 3pt lower spreaders. Heavier sticks in lighter kites ?

The SD Light carries 5PT spreaders, and I have 3PT when I have very light winds, so the SD STD will have 5PTs.
