All stoppers are measured to the side of the stopper of the thing they are stopping.
Upper leading edge:
Skyshark P2X (P200) 28.25"
ULE Stopper: 15.75" from the ferrule end
Ferrule: 4" x .24 poltruded solid carbon. 1.5" glued into the ULE.
Lower leading edge:
Skyshark P2X (Avia G-force SUL) 29.75"
LLE Stopper: 20.25" from wing tip without nock
(There is a 2" segment of P100 glued into the ferrule end to act as an adapter. This really needs to be glued well, otherwise the LLE can slip and split. Original only )
Skyshark 5PT OR Aerostuff Gold S* 29.75"
Standoff connectors: Centers are 11.125" and 13.25" from the ferrule end of the spar
Ferrule: 4" .24 solid carbon. 1.75" glued into one of the spreaders.
*Aerostuff only works well in the II. The original flies terribly with AS spreaders.
Avia .22 poltruded carbon 20"
3mm (11.75") <different for II - still need to update this info>
Skyshark P2X (P200) 32.5" [full length]
Stopper: 21.75" from nose end of spar and another far enough from the base that is holds five weights and the end cap with no slop. Some earlier versions have it slightly farther up the spine. That works OK, but if it comes undone, you might want to move it closer to the tail.
Upper leading edge: APA CA
Lower Leading Edge: APA DB
ULE and spine end caps: .285" VEC
Tip knocks: HQ style
Tip knock covers: VECs
Stoppers: .285" x .25" vinyl
Yoyo-stoppers: R-sky hard drilled out enough to easily slide over the spar
Center tee: 6mm x 7mm R-sky style
Tail weights: 3/8" hex nuts (Stock weighting is 5) Use mercury adhesives CA glues or epoxy on any glue joints holding tailweights. No other CA glue I have tried holds up well enough.
All measurements from connection to connetion. The larksheads in the bridle itself are measured to the bend when locked down
If you need to tie a new bridle if you have worn it out, these are the measurements to cut.
