Hi Troy,
Did you try calling the company? That is the first thing I would do to get something like this resolved.

I guess that the stack question would be more proper in the stack forum. I'll go post it there.
My North Coast to South Coast trip will not be complete without my favorite kites, and the 3 piece LE makes that doable on the motorcycle.

Doesn't a 3-siece LE come with the rev II? If not, you can always call Ben or Lolly and see if they could make you come 2 wrap or mabye even a rece rod 3-piece LE for it. I've never asked about something like that, so I'm not sure what they'd say.


My leading edges are 2 piece, 37" spars, for a total of 74". I am thinking of making 3 25" spars (or close enough to make 74 total)

Great information!
That will be easy to do, with the 32" straight sections, I can cut them down to length. I was worried about that.

Since that was so easy, let me add another question. I have a stack of 3 Rev 2's. Probably my favorite thing to fly. For the second and third kite, I would probably be able to get away with the same 3 piece LE as I am looking to use on my single. But the first kite I run reinforcements (.240 pultruded) inside the stock Revolution spars. Do you think I could get away with a 3 piece LE on the first stack as well, if I put similar reinforcements in the spars for the first kite?

Maybe go with some .240 inserts like this pic? (sorry for the MS Paint style pic)
