One of the most popular sections of the GWTW Forum has long been the Swap Meet.  A great place to sell old, seldom flown kites or to get great deals on used (gently flown) kites.  Only registered users can see the Swap Meet section, let alone wheel and deal.  1000's (literally) of kites have changed hands thanks to the Swap Meet.

Gave my niece an 11 foot Gomberg ghost delta a while back.
It was used when I got it.
I'm sure I showed her how the leading edges should be pushed all of the way down to the trailing edges, but I guess she forgot, and the leading edges are broken.
My problem is, she has thrown out the originals.

We are now in need of new ones.
Anyone know what these are framed in? I'd like to replace both sides. The spine and spreader are both fine.

The tails on this kite are Ripstop, not organza.
Anyone have suggestions?

6 mm Fiberglass in the leading edge?

Tube: 6mm outside / 4 mm inside / 1290mm length?

TIA for any help

It is a two piece leading edge. I have had great success using .230 pilferage carbon. Drop me an email or PM and I can help you out.
