Ferrels (alternate spelling Ferrule) link two like spars together.
For help in determining the correct size ferrel, refer to the following spreadsheet: http://www.kitebuilder.com/inventory/ferrels.htm
Find the spar you are trying to connect in the left side of the table, then find the associated internal and/or external ferrel on the right side.
If you can’t find what you are looking for, note your required diameter(s) and give Kite Studio a call (610–395–3560). They have many non-standard sizes that are not listed.
