I have not tried the Crack Yak but my 3DHS 330 flys better than the Twisted Xtra Slick. I do hear good things about the Crack Yak however.

I tossed my hard earned $$$ at a new bird called the "Slicko", built it , flew it, liked it and others around me have been ordering them also.

Bob, it seemed with the surgical tubing that it wasn't as crisp with the throttle so when i lost all the surgical tubing, i tried dental floss wound about ten or twenty times around and it seems faster

Maybe the original extra slick, the updated version is awesome...the entire Twisted lineup has got the EPP profiles on point, even the Edge is outstanding.

Thanks 3dhsedge41er.
So you just wrap with dental floss and tie off somehow?

Does anyone know of a good place to buy EPP foam that matches what was used on the 33" Extras? Got an old one that really needs some repairs/replacement parts. I would like to match the foam as closely (or an exact match) as possible.

Thanks,
Jason

So any word of when (if ever) these are going to be produced again? I thought I remembered someone saying they hoped to have them before Christmas this year again.
Tore mine up in full contact combat last night, and I want another one!

I have no clue when they will be back, however you might want to just get a twisted hobby crack yak. It is the best foamy I have ever flown.

I've flown a crack yak, but I much prefer the 33" Extra. Still have one in good shape, but I'd like a spare.

I understand, however it looks like these are not coming back. I love my 3dhs 34'' epp edge, and would love it if they made more.
