Okay.....

there are a couple of different frames for the 6....
the skins are the same, just the framing is different.

For one of your age that should have GForce Skinny ULs on the tips and a GForce rod in between - iirc it should be the lightest excel GForce Rod...NEEDS to have both ends reinforced....

Most 6s had a .2650 carbon frame...pultruded.....great frame.....

I also had 2 6s that had Rev sticks in them.....these were both 1994 and older.

You can use what ever rods you want on it...it will be fine...tapered rods work best for the UL framing on the wing tips.....it is a tension based frame so there should be no slop anyhow......
i would plug the ends of the tapered rods to make sure that they do not get crushed.....

yes rob i have skinnys but on the taper small end goes into the gold colored end caps they are 6.00 inside and tapered rodss are alot smaller i can put vynil caps on to make them tight and put solid rod inside on ends and internal ferrules  they have to have tapered because washers that the rod goes  through the hole is small

if i go with 2650 rods they don't fit in the washers so thats why i say tapered i have avia std avia ul and avia sul all in tapered if i use race rods i would have to make hole in washer larger or put washer on ferrule in between rods  but i don't like that idea i can also  change end caps to accept the taper rods and plug ends with solid fiberglass
