A quick search produced Goodwinds and a good price on the P100.  I'd use one for the boom.  1/8" pultruded spars have worked fine for me.  Rick found cf tubes in either Walmarts of  Kmarts that look good.   John ________________________________ From: raincityflyer <lewis08@...> To: BugHLG@yahoogroups.com Sent: Wednesday, March 21, 2012 12:41 AM Subject: [BugHLG] Re: Carbon Booms   Max - I personally stay away from pultuded tubes. I prefer wrapped tubes around 1/4" or 5-6 mm. There are plenty of kite stores online that sell them for $10-12. A Skyshark P100 will just fit in the AG 37 tip rib. Cheers!
