Springs

Hi everyone,

Just a heads up: we are now beginning the development of a method to make replacement springs for the Fly!

This will be a bit of a process for us, and we already have a few other "Fly Clone tooling things" in our pipeline, but, right now, we have determined the steel grade, the thickness, and the final hardness (after heat-treating) of the springs that were being produced for USM, so, in short: we're working on developing an approach so that we can, ideally, re-make these springs in-house according to the same specs/tensions (and then different tensions!). More soon, but I wanted to share this news as a few people have messaged me about this!

The grim reality is that, eventually, all of the Fly springs will "fail" in some regard; this doesn't mean, of course, that your springs are going to go shooting through the front of your Fly tomorrow, only that, over time, Fly springs will lose some elasticity from repeated use. So, naturally, we want to come up with some sort of solution. More info in time!

I have an extra coveted spring for 10’s.....
If my 9 spring breaks I’ll have finger cramps!
Keep up the good work VJ et. al.
