Please could someone explain to me why the guerillas delivered in the USA come with 4 spars and the ones in Europe come only with 2. Have tried to comunicate with the Peter Lynn organisation but no luck in getting a reply thanks, Marek

The ones coming from Traig in the USA might have four spars because they have a modification that is supposed to make a big difference. Have a read on the yahoo arcusers site. You don't have to use the extra spars, you can just use them standard. I'm sure Traig will post a reply to this as soon as he sees it.

Hi Marek!

Those kites are available in Europe. In fact Peter Lynns main distributor is located in Netherlands. It is called Vlieger Op.

spars

Postby chicagokitesurfer » Mon May 19, 2003 7:05 pm

The extra spars are to be inserted into custom pockets located at the fifth cell inward on each end. This spar stiffens the chord of the kite which produces more efficient turning effects for the same force on the steering lines of the kite (the kite turns faster).

I don't resell the kites with this modification. But many people really kite the difference, though some claim there's not too much. I haven't tried it on the Gs, but have done it on the S arcs and it works, but not much on the bigger sizes, so I don't bother.
