Keep Smarties in them. With a complete SLE I calculate there is enough room for 453 Smarties, and it would protect them from getting crushed. The black would not be too good at reflecting heat though, so don't leave it in the sun.


You have far too much time on your hands - calculating the number of smarties - Excellent idea though & probably the best so far! In the absence of anything better, the prize (a tube of smarties) will be dispatched at short notice

This line from 400 years ago comes to mind while reading this thread.

Share them with people who can only afford an EXP. If the leading edge is wide enough, and it has been so far, put them in the leading edge when the wind picks up. It sure makes a difference in the EXP's high wind ability.

Use them as a 'fing-longer' so you can change the channel on yer TV without getting up
when you are too squiffy to find the remote control :kid_devlish:

But at least we know where his Smartie stash is next time he leaves his bag unattended ;)

Personally I'm surprised he hasnt suggested plugging one end, filling it with wine and a cork in the other ... "yard of wine anyone?"

Probably need a lot more rods though!

ya could always use an SLE for waking up someone who is cranky, just thwack them with it and run with it. And the best part is...you start already out of their reach

i had the thought of a high tech karate staff. I know a person that wanted a flexible yet durable and strong demonstration staff for karate competitions... i got him an SLE. He uses it for sparring as well- has nice speed and flex to it that makes it feel like you get hit with a whip...last time i spar with him. ouch

i have been thinking for awhile that the SLE rods would make great tarp poles for a tent/tarp like the MSR Missing link.....
so if anyone has a set (or random single rods) i would love to make a full set of tarp poles up.......need 5 i think....
got trades in mind? money?

I've used SLEs for propping up the tarp for my campsite at WSIKF. They work great! :D

Now here's a thought. Did you know that the outside diameter of an SLE rod is the tiniest fraction smaller than the inside diameter of 15mm copper pipe, which is of course easy to bend.....

I didn't know I wanted any until a few minutes ago!

I was eating a ham sandwich looking at your SLEs on the kitchen table, and it suddenly occurred to me how much an SLE looked the same size as 15mm pipe. Next thing I know, I have a set of light wind handles - and it's really windy today too - weird! Then I suddenly discovered I had just bought a abstract rev design on a hoodie. The subversive power cafe press on a revaholic I guess.

Now I wonder if they will make my light wind flying any better? Hummm.
