About this blog
A "Dynamic Response Test" has been created to compare properties of several Carbon Tubes.
Specifications for carbon tubing that you purchase for the purpose of constructing a frame yourself, or for modifying an existing frame, only include tube ID and OD dimensions, and an overall weight. Some tubes and frame sets will only provide a model ID and no other information. The more experience kite flier or builder will be interested in more information than this. Hopefully the tests that I have conducted will be useful to you although you will see from the pictures that I don’t have a NIST certified lab. I was able to conduct these tests with readily available household items (for me, they were readily available ).
