Is anyone here seriously looking at the SL7? If someone wants it, I will not bid, but if no one here is interested I might try and grab it cheap. God knows why... I'm just drawn to it.

Go for it - if you flatten the nose so it doesn't fly straight at you they aren't as weird as we once thought.

I think it might already be out of the cheeky punt range at £27. Can you even get replacements for those LLEs any more?

Wasn't flying towards you the whole point of the thing?

The LLE's seem pretty robust, they are fibre glass rather than carbon. I've broken a few spreaders but despite a lot of bouncing the LLEs have always held up.

There's a big difference between a glide when you expect it and heading toward you at random just because you reached the top of the window.

Looks like they're all out of cheeky punt territory now

Crazy money.  You can buy new for not much more.
