AWS BALL BEARING FRAME 8"

Great windsock/frame setup. I have bought the 18 inch hoop/sock before but the 24 inch hoop/sock is definitely BIGGER. Depends on how big you want. 3/4 threaded EMT or galvanized pipe with a 3/4” coupling of the same material screws on easily to the hoop and just needs to be stuck in the ground from there as the hoop has its on bearings to rotate on.

Very high quality and light weight. It screws onto a 3/4” pipe. The ball bearings allow the sock to respond to the slightest wind.

Well built and easy to install, we mounted it on top of a carbon fiber pole on the roof of our sun-shelter. We are a RC Flying club. www.wimca.ca

The frame spins easily and is sensitive to the wind. It is well made. It arrived undamaged, was well packaged and in good time. It was a couple of days later than estimated, but it was ordered over Christmas.

Solid construction, should last a long time. Bearings make it swivel so easily! Well worth the $.
