    Genuine HW spring source?

    I can't seem to source the genuine 15.8mm ID HW80 springs anywhere?

    That's because they were superseded by the thicker wired 15.5mm. If you want to pm me or call me tomorrow with what you're after I may be able to help

    Oh bugger, I've ordered guides new and used in 15.8 in anticipation lol.
    I'll probably be wiser ordering your full HW80 kit which I assume is the 15.5 with fitted guides...

    If it was from us then give me the details and we'll sort it as best we can. If it was ordered this weekend we can hold it before it's posted

    Sadly it wasn't I ordered used and new other in 15.8 assuming an older fat spring I have from one of yours is 15.8, I stupidly chopped your original guide to make a top hat...long messy story. Its about 18 months old so probably 15.5 (it was a 35 kit) but assuming the uncut spring is the same as an 80.
    As usual my attempt at cutting corners will double the oultay of buying right af first lol.

    Thank you for the offer of adjustment of an order if only I'd have placed it with you!

    I think your maxi pro kit is in stock but the just guides one isn't which started my expensive incorrect workaround to use my existing spring from your 35 kit.

    Thanks Nick order placed this morning, this way I know the guides fit the spring, by chance do you know the length of the 80 spring in the kit please?
