    Field Testers needed for 2QZQ Cuben Grizz Beak

    ...ZQ here...We are looking for 2 people willing to purchase, at cost, a Cuben Fiber Grizz Beak. The Field Testers will agree to give them a test and let us know what you think. We also ask that you be willing to post a review under our forum here on HF. EDIT: We have both buyers/testers. Thanks!

    We had a customer ask us to check into the possibility of making a Grizz Beak in Cuben. We asked for input from Grizz, WV, Stormcrow, and the guy at Cubic Tech. I made a mini beak with some scraps from Stormcrow, and after some testing (tug of war), we are ready for field testing. Everything is sewn...no tape was used.

    We are asking $62.00....this is the cost of fabric, shipping and PP fees. Labor is free!

    If you are interested....the first 2 posting an "I'll buy and test one" will be the testers. We will then PM you with further details.

    Thanks!

    Quick Question

    What is the weight? I was going to make a Grizz Beak for my stock HH tarp. Do you think it would work on it?

    If so I would be interested.

    I don't know the weight...haven't made a regular sized beak yet. The sil Grizz Beak weighs approx 6 oz. The cuben one will come in much less!

    The Grizz Beaks do not fit the stock HH tarp. Sorry.

    I guess I should ask... I'm assuming it'll work with a WB mamajamba. As long as it does, I'm still in.

    Well...the Grizz beak is designed to fit a tarp with a width of approx. 104" or slightly less. Therefore, it would be approx. 8" short on each side. So, I guess you need to decide if it would work for you to have the beaks shorter than the tarp sides.

    Shoot - I'd rather not have it end up shorter. I'll back out and let the next person in line experiment with it as they'll probably have a better test case. Thanks!
