Hi,

Could anyone keep me right on Rev 1 spars, I want to change the SLE leading edge on my Sedgwick to a 1/4 inch one.
Now on my Rev 1.5s the SLE spars are shorter than the 1/4 inch spars (about an inch for the leading edge) but with the caps and spar size I can swap between the two.
My problem is the Rev 1 SLE spars are the same length as the 1/4 inch down spars, so does that mean the leading edge will be the same size for both and I can't swop between the two?

Thanks

PeterN

All the 1/4 rods should be the same length. Mine all swap between the sails fine.

1/4 inch leading edges are always a little longer than SLEs, because they bow more and they need the extra length to keep the tension in the sail.
