Cheap source for fiberglass rods/tubes?

Tue Dec 30, 2014 6:48 pm

Got a cheap $5 eagle kite for my son from China. Flew perfect in 5 mph wind but my son ignored advice and kept jerking the line to make the wings flap, and he succeeded in breaking a 5 mm fiberglass tube.

Anywhere to get cheap replacement ? Or cheaper to order new kite ?

Saw someone created his own bridle to allow it to withstand more wind / pull.
