I can only go along with you, but I have to admit, it is more difficult to get our hands on new good stuff: on the one hand economy isn't fantastic at the moment, and prices have double in the space of 4 years. You could get the top gliders for 1000€ in 2008, you now have to spend 1700-2000€ for the top gliders...

I notice that there weren't much gliders for sell during winter in France: people are keeping what they have and don't invest much...

Cedric,

Ps: I hope everything is OK with Vaclav, I haven't seen him for a while now, and his production doesn't seem to reach many competitors.

I met Vaclav 2 weeks ago at his home workshop, he seemed to be in great shape. I think he has sold around 40 Stingers so far...

6 no. 170 x 9 x 10mm
2 no. 110 x 10 x 11mm

However from experience I would say you need to check your joiner as the insides are not always the same. They weren't on the two ascot joiners I had. When we all had ascots a couple of years back I think we all had our own ballasat shapes really.

That being said, looking at the two I have here the insides seem more consistent. The dimensions of the holes in the joiners is actually 12 x 12mm on mine at the tip of the joiner. Maybe it's thinner in the middle, but 10x9 will probably rattle around inside.
