Glad you like our little discussion here.

Whether it is better to replace the tubing or the whole thing is up to you. If the line is good, the parachute good, the rings good, the reel good and the spikes good, then all you need is the tubing. on the other hand the difference in price for a complete unit vs just tubing may not be that much.

For example, the Dynaflight HD at Tower is $60. The tubing alone is $50. For $10 you get the spool, ($5) parachute ($12) rings ($3), line ($3) and a spike. - might as well get the whole kit and use the old stuff to make a shorter up-stat for practice.

What kind of plane are you launching and what size and strength was your old hi-start. Were you happy with it.

Maybe we can point you to a good source. The interenet places ship pretty quickly.

My upstart is made with 25 feet of REAL surgical tubing that I bought on e-bay for about $12 I think.

Tell us how we can help you.
