Ch 50 question

Post by Dragboatdriver » Mon Mar 24, 2014 8:04 am


I am getting ready to do a build on a Chronarch 50E. I am doing a Sky Blue KTF spool and I want to do a Sky Blue full dressup kit from hedgehog studios. I did this exact build on an Aldebaran not too long ago, but I kept the stock drag star and stock handle. On the Ch 50 build I am looking to use the 85mm swept CF handle that Hedgehog offers. However, I cannot find a sway back drag star that I am happy with the color on.

So, my question is this:

Does anyone know if the 85mm swept hedgehog studios handle will clear the stock drag star on the CH50?

If so, my Aldebaran will likely be getting one as well!

I just installed the 90mm Hedgehog Studios swept CF handle on my CH 51E and I could not get it to fit with the stock drag star. I installed the Avail swept drag star type A, tension knob, knob caps and retainer and retainer nut in sapphire blue and it looks great.
