Im curious what folks are using for spars nowadays as I can't find any spruce.
I was putting together a parts supply to build one and found no spruce.
Confounded, I gave up.
I have considered using basswood/ CF laminated on the bottom surface of the bottom spar as I reckon upward flex (tension) is probably the primary structural concern.
I also considered 1/8x3/8 CF pultrusion spars throughout.

still considering...doing nothing.

What methods have recent builder's used?
