  1. So latest update: All fixed! Good to go! Just need to build up some coordination and endurance in the leg. May even salvage a little outdoor flying this year!! If not, at least indoors. For all of you that had me in their thoughts - Thank you!
  2. Never trust that most store bought sets are good! Closest I've found are those from The Kite Shoppe. Theresa make great sets on any length, most strengths. Highly recommend her..
  3. Healing pretty well so far. Swelling is going down in my operated leg. PT has given me exercises to strengthen the leg and increase flexibility. Got a dr appointment to remove staples and assess things. Looking forward to being able to put more weight on it. Gradual improvement......
  4. Update. Surgery went really well. Home recouping, limited in weight allowed on repaired leg. Stiff and sore, but still a bit mobile. 3 weeks check up to see if I can put more weight on it. Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers!
  5. Hope your surgery turned out well.  Blue

  6. Sorry to have been quiet for so long, but life has dealt me a setback. I will be getting a new replacement hip on Thursday. Something about my body is rejecting the replacement I had done in 2009. The doctor isn't sure what he will find until he gets in there and sees for himself. I'm not kidding when I say I'm a little nervous about this. When they were replaced them before, I knew why. This time - not so sure..... Any way, I thought I'd keep you up on the latest and promise to post as soon as I am able. Fingers crossed and all that...... Wayne
  7. Told you the sky was falling .......TIMBER!!!!
  8. Wait - I'm picking myself off the floor!! This spoils my perfect record!! I never win!!! Oh dear - the sky might be falling!!
  9. That is my usual job. Must be falling down.....
  10. What could you use in the middle, if you wanted to use these in a quad? or would they not work??
  11. Just be aware that some rod suppliers have firmer foam than some others. I have sets that use a very dense, firm foam and a set of JB's with thick, but squishier foam. Many options, just gotta look....
  12. To answer 1 question - the venting on the 'B" is slightly more than a vented SLE sail. Look closely, and you will see that the vented panels are ever so smaller on the SLE. Agree with riff - 'B" pros were almost always a special order item. Most fliers liked to pick their own color combos. There were a few standard combos that some stores might have gotten as display pieces. But I'm guessing those were gone pretty fast.
