On my clip wing cub project I am in process of making struts. I have a old supercub and a Pa22 Colt rear strut. I was suprised how much heavier the Colt rear strut is compared to the Supercub. Of course the Supercub has jury struts and the Colt doesn't. Any opinions on if I make a
Colt-type rear strut and use a much shorter PA-18 front strut (Do to being a clipped wing) and build without using jury struts? Also on the increased gross weight supercubs, with much larger and heavier engines, is anything done to beef-up struts?

Thanks
