    If you have an opportunity have a look at the Valdez STOL competition on the DVD "Big Rocks and Long Props Vol II". There are about 25 super cubs competing with all sorts of STOL devices The shortest Take off, 51 ft, was made with a stock round tip cub wing by Paul Claus. Admittedly he does not run an electrical system so really saves alot of weight. I'm sure fences, tips, VG's and Borer props all help but I think pilot skills and keeping it as light as possible make just as much difference.
