You can see the bend on masts here and by tensioning a line between the tips, even more bend could be induced - especially if a kite spar consisted of two mast top halves joined at the centre of the LE.

Fourth advantage: If no depower is needed, it means less "work" at the bar ...
Technically we just need more air pressure in the tubes to reduce diameter. So the tubes must be enforced - we need a completely new tube technology !
I hope in a few years we will only laugh (or vomit) at the big blown-up sausages we use now
