"Seemingly" broken cleanly off. Did you find the broken missing piece? If no,,,

 

My guess is the glue broke loose and that piece slid down into the tube, you need to break the other one loose and pull it out pliers work ok, I use a long metal rod to push those pieces out, then reglue them back in.

Final results for me, 13" to 15" leaders after the knots are in place on the top (forward/drive) of 13" handles works out great. Shorter or longer handles may need shorter or longer top leaders accordingly.

Ok, back with some results. I connected my equalized lines directly to the swivel clips, kite wouldn't get off the ground too much reverse. Brought my top lines to the last knot out it got the kite off the ground inverted but still poor reverse but a lot of forward. Added a leader with knots from another set of handles to each of the top swivel clips on the kite, result = flies like a dream. One thing I'll try because I don't know if that makes a difference, is to remove the leader at the kite swivel and add it to the handle's leader.

That's a good thing "no wind" it gives you time to unwind your line set, equalize them, attach them to the handles and wind them back up.

OR! Buy a 1/4" wooden dowel that's 36" long and say heck with the crazy glue. Cut the 34.2" tube down to 31" and have a spare for the 1.5. I just brought down one of my Rev 1 classics with the swivel clips, when the lawn dries out I'll fly it with a set of equalized lines, and report back.
