I have a friend that has a bundle of old Rev rods that were especially created to frame up his North Shore Radicals back in the day (as far as I know, they're the same diameter, I.D. and O.D., as a standard Rev rod). He didn't think he had any that were the required 38.25" long, and suggested we make a 2-piece rod. My questions aren't about strength- it's the most commonly broken spar on this particular Rev (I'm told), so stronger is better. But will stiffer be an issue? Would it negatively affect the flight characteristics? I think these rods are 4-wrap as well- some of them might be 3-wrap. I *might* be able to get some 3-wrap rods real cheap to try this with. This would be the same concept as the travel frame for the 1.5.
I'm looking for any advice/suggestions/experience from Revolution and/or the brain trust that inhabits these forums, and that I have the utmost respect for.
