I can think of at least 3 different NFX kites both old school and new.  Depending on what brand kite it will be 6mm pultruded, p200 or p300.  If its the nirvana version I've seen both p200 and p300 in them.  Look at the old spine for any markings.

The R-Sky NFX standard came with 6mm pultruded carbon frame for both the nylon and icarex versions.  Skyshark 6mm will do just fine

Kevin knows more about the nirvana line than I do so he is probably right about the stock rod.  Most of the ones that passed through my hands were modded by previous owners.

Mine is 6mm all around including the upper spreader.  The lower spreaders are P2X.

Its a 2012 edition, but I don't think they have changed much except P2X for P200 which has probably gone back to P200 now.

Also google on the clique my friend!  A well-known and talented flyer here in the PNW has spent considerable time and developed related talents on this kite.  He has tuned this one considerably.   He details his frame and bridle if you are interested.  I've flown it, it's good.  I also love the stock setup.

You can buy them direct from Skyshark, or from Skyshark stockists.  I won't post a direct link here, but a search engine will help you find them  Smiley

EDIT:  Sorry, I see what you mean.  .2400

Yes you said " 6 mm" and 6 mm is .2400".

But the original pultruded tubes used by R-SKY are 6 mm Structil.
