    I'm planning on purchasing a set of load spreaders from shuttle-house, however I noticed from many of you that most of you use the Gosen GMHAB load spreader.
    My question is, why no love for the Yonex one or the Gosen GMO2517? Shuttle-house seems to use the yonex one from thier pictures.
    Do you guys see flaws with using the shorter load spreader? It is cheaper in price.

    any info or words of wisdom would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks :)

    I don't see any problem as long as it fits the central-support post. You should try it out and report back to us :).

    Load spreaders in UK

    Do any UK residents know where I can get hold of a load spreader (not necessarily Gosen)? I'd prefer to buy one but, if I can't, I'll try and make one.

    Many thanks:).

    I've tried WATDON - this flumoxed Francis. Ended up making my own

    Aye - Watdon's catalogue, though extensive, doesn't contain a load spreader. If you don't mind divulging, whhat sort of material did you use for yours? I've got some scraps of PVC lying around the shed, but they might be too rigid...
