For dual depower-line there really should be a separator on pass-through for untwisting and non-locking/sticking to work. Do a couple of rotations and your safety might not work. Fail.
Not a problem! Mine works fine! Previous bars I had with same type of system worked fine to. Think difference in thickness helps, as I have had C kites earlier were spinn locked the 5th line, but that was the front lines up after the split with a LOT of spinns.
You also have a really easy to spinn swivel if you do 100 rotations one way...

As far as I know a 'normal' amount of twists in the lines has not been a problem when activating the QR on the current bars that use a similar system.
If the centre lines are twisted 'too much' of course it is going to be a problem when activating the QR. I had this happen just yesteday.

If you have functional untwisting system you pull the bar to full power and it untwist automatically.

Out of curiosity how much extra wear does it cause on the lines?

Ive been on tbe Eleveight WS kites since there release. I use the 11,9, and 7m kite. Im super stoked with them and my true belief is that they are the best wave/freeride kite on the market.
Super fast, smooth and even power throughout the turn. It pivots with presistion and drifts with ease. Great loeend power. But what i love is that you can throw it high and go nuts on you strapless freestyle tricks on the same kite.. NEO FANS will realy enjoy how good it is at each point and the drifter fans wont be able to find a reason to complain... msybe just about the amount of money the spent on there drifter quiver 🤣🤣🤣

I've been riding the WS a little while. Only the 7 and 9. I dont feel like i need a bigger kite than the 9, as it's quite powerful. In reality ill probably get an 11 though.

It feels a little like a Reo. It's has more grunt than the Cabo, so the Neo riders will like it, but smoother and more controlled.

Here´s a Short video of Nuno Stru, looks like it does more than just wave and drifting well. Seems like a good jumper as well. I have only tried it once and was in crazy storm so was more in survival mode than getting the full propper test, and on a borrowed kite...
