Leading edge batons

Postby socommk23 » Fri Aug 25, 2017 11:16 am

Hey guys n gals.

What are the leading edge batons in the majority of race kites made of?
And where can I get the material to make my own?

Looking to modify a kite of mine and the knowledge base here for materials is the best starting point. I'm assuming it's just a type of thermoplastic rod but no idea of the spesifics or how or where to get it from
