0.098 Carbon has arrived!

Friday, March 12th, 2010

Some of you might know that Goodwinds has been out of 0.098″ diameter solid carbon rod for some time – our manufacturer moved and had to set up a whole new microcarbon pultrusion machine.  It’s now up and running and we have lots of 0.098.  This is a great size for standoffs in kites and also has lots of applications in model airplanes.  Visit our solid carbon page to order your 0.098 carbon today!

Customer Spotlight on: Warlord Sports

Tuesday, March 9th, 2010

You may or may not be familiar with medieval combat games or Live Action Role-Playing (LARP), but at Goodwinds.com, we count those who participate in LARP and combat games among our best customers.  These customers have a lot of fun with their sport!

Many of the foam weapons used in LARP and medieval combat games use a fiberglass core.  Warlord Sports (www.warlordsports.com) is a quality purveyor of foam swords using Goodwinds’ fiberglass.

“Warlord Sports uses fiberglass tubing in the vast majority of our
products. When properly padded it has incredible resiliency, just the
right amount of rigidity, and a strength-to-weight ratio that simply
cannot be beat. We manufacture an entire line of top-end combat sports
products that rely on fiberglass tubing as the core component and no
other material can replace it.” -Brennon Meiners, Warlord Sports

We are happy to be a part of the LARPing world and supplying fiberglass to Warlord Sports.  We also work with Edhellen Armoury and Merchants Wares, so there’s lots of Goodwinds fiberglass in LARP across America.  Check it out, you might just find a fun new hobby!
