> Hi everyone,
> I recently bought an old alpha board for 100$ to sail in light winds.
> It has a peculiar universal. It has a *** "rod" that connects the
> bottom with the top, and a rectangular bottom part which snaps into
> place, and is released by pressing a plastic white lever on it.
> Only problem is the *** rod is all but torn, and I'm trying to find a
> way to replace it.
> I'd be grateful if you shared any ideas you may have on the matter with
