Hello.. hello...hello...hello... is there anybody out there?
that has any knowledge or idea about if you can replace an SLE
(Revolution) with a Skyshark 7 P.
Are they comparable regarding stiffnes/weight ratio?
What about the vertical spars? Skyshark 5 P?
Thank you for any input on this one.

The SLE Ultra light spar  has an outside diameter of 12mm, inside
is 11mm.
The Skyshark 7P is around 8mm.

You could use them if you want to but your loosing the adavantage
of the stiffness and light weight.
Personally I would recommend the original Revolution spars.
They are just more robust.

As for the down spars. Use the originals. They are worth the
extra money you pay.

Enjoy,
