Cosmic TC Mods

Has anyone upgraded their Cosmic ghost from the 5mm leading edges to a 2pt/3pt set up. I wondered if this was worthwhile?

Only one way to find out, however I'm sure Thomas at KiteHouse would've tested all options.

They 2pt leading edges and the lower spreaders but I am always concerned about the fragility of a 2pt lower spreader

I love aerostuff blue in all but price. I might try the lower spreaders from my standard cosmic to see if that works.

I’m not a good as him so I have to weigh the anxiety of breaking one against increased performance!
