Which bars work for Flexifoil kites?

I have a Flexifoil Ion and a Flexifoil Proton kite. I think they are from 2012. I don't like their bar though since I think that one could wish more from the safety system. I tried to fly the Ion kite with a best bar from 2013, but the turning speed was not good with this bar. Perhaps was the lines ...

Anyone with experience from working as kite instructor at Langebaan?

I´m planning a trip to Cape Town this winter and consider the possibility to work as a kite instructor at Langebaan. I´ve been at that spot before and I remember it as quite crowded and rough, but giving kite lessons there is perhaps fine?

What are your opinions?

Change chicken loop on Best Control Bar 2013

I have a Best Control Bar from 2013 with a huge chicken loop. I guess the bar is aimed for riders that make unhooked tricks. Anyway, would be nice to change the chicken loop to the smaller version. Does anyone know if this is possible?

How does the safety system work on this Flexifoil bar?

I have recently bought an old flexifoil bar and a flexifoil Proton kite. I think the model year is 2013. Anyway, the kite is fine, but the bar... I don't get it how the safety system is meant to work. There is a metal ring under QR, which I honestly don't what to use for. Then there is a safety line...

Shorten lines on trainerkite?

Is there anyone who has a good idea of how to shorten lines on a trainer kite?

I have a 3m kite which I must use on a windy day that is coming soon. I´m thinking that it should be possible to shorten the lines somehow rather than taking a smaller trainer kite with less good aerodynamics.

Short leashes

I recently bought some new Best kites and they come with a super short leash. What´s the use with these leashes? Are you suppose to attach them at the front of your harness?

Re: RRD obsession 2015 compatible with global V7 bar?

their latest bar have a low V design, and the previous ones had a higher split point (around 4-5m), which makes the whole kite feel a bit more direct (low V) and a bit more slack on the back lines (better for freestyle) but you might want to shorten the front pigtails (or put an extra few cm on the...

Re: Best Roca vs TS - which one to choose?

Thanks for your feedback guys! I´m still not convinced whether I should go for the Roca or the TS. I´m not doing unhooked tricks, but on the other hand I often loop the kite (downloops and heli-loops), so perhaps will the TS be a better choice. I´m thinking that the best would be to try them both an...
