Padding at spredder ends.

Currently the padding is old and not very aerodynamic. One of the pads isn't there anymore and exposing the sail to a sharp edge. I'd like to get a "nicer" pad at the end of the spreaders if they make one reasonably priced. Anyone know where I can get one? I did find these...

Are these things my only option? They fit the budget, but they're sure not winning any beauty contests.

Doesn't look like my link worked. Here is the p/n from Defender.

I've got the Edson leather spreader boots (search for "edson spreader" on Defender). They look good and allow plenty of air in to the lines. I'm not sure they fit in your budget.

Dear Capnhand,
