    After reading up on 6 point mount stringers, I would like to start using an H adapter on my Gamma Progression II 602 FC. Problem is I can not find any h adapters for purchase, anywhere. Do any of you use these adapters and know where to buy them? Thanks.

    They are available from Leisure sports in the UK, by Yonex. Someone here was selling one for $35 shipped, but I could probably make one myself out of Delrin.

    not sure that a Delrin H adapter without some sort of (much) stiffer metal backing will provide any additional support.... I think unreinforced Delrin would just deflect to the contour of the frame and not really support it due to its relative lack of stiffness....

    Though it's much softer than ABS plastic, Delrin does deform a bit, but that's what will help spread the load. I'm not saying it's going to work on all frames. I'm mainly going to use it for convex frames.

    Id like to touch on this again. google searches for "H adapter" turn up nothing. Is it called something else? I have the capability to make a couple myself, but would rather not spend the time.
