Aaaa...that's a different ballgame. The original carbon pole/end-pole snuffer setup was something like a 3" carbon pole...and not terribly flexible. I think that's what the original poster is talking about. I would be surprised if 3" of prebend was ENOUGH on the aluminum pole setup. After having to drop it even more after ordering a new kite, I finally took my aluminum pole out of the forestay fitting and suspended it with a couple of mid-pole bridles to reduce the prebend and so it wasn't so prone to snapping in two.
