    • Is better to buy figerglass or carbon rod?  
    • You can, depending on your skills and the method by which it is attached to the sail. Some just snap or screw in -- others require some sewing skills.
    • It is normal. All parts will break eventually from use and abuse. They break most often when you are starting out and are crashing frequently.  They break less often when are skilled and are cautious with your equipment. Most damage come from crashes, hard non-crash landings, and from dragging along the ground. Sometimes parts will be destroyed on impact. Sometimes they will be damaged but won't completely break until placed under stress. Parts can also break under the stress of high winds, but for beginners that is less common than impact or snag damage.   Several companies (including HQ) sell the rods, clips, and other necessary parts to repair the kite. It may take some labor to cut rods to the proper length and securely attach them, or they may have an exact replacement part. Sometimes the kite vendors will send a no-cost replacement part for a newly-purchased kite. Contact them and ask.  Otherwise shop around, there are many stores that sell parts for a range of prices.  
    • Hi, I'm new at stunt kiting. Two weeks ago I bought a new kite - Yukon II by HQ kites. Today, when I was flying my stand-off ram suddenly broke. Is this thing normal and can I change the ram?  
    • That's the main reason for the travel frame.. It breaks a Hadziki Wing into smaller segment for travel.. Will fit in a backpack, suitcase or even some lunchboxes.. The Added benefit  @Paul LaMasters mentioned, is you can tune the individual segments of the frame for the proper flex and stiffness you want. Like putting a 3 wrap in the center with race or 2 wraps on the ends.. Now you have 6 segments to play with and you can focus the strength (or flex) only where it is desired.  You can do a whole other level of tuning for your sail. My Travel Frame is all Skyshark Camo (P2 and P4) and has a few extra segments so I can adjust the size of the frame to work with any size from B2 to my 96" size and everything in between.
