Does this kite fit bars with equal line length? Thanks

Yes, it does. They prefer a low Y as well

Thanks when you say low Y i assume you mean where the two front lines join - which is at the swivel at the end of the c/loop line in my case?

Not tried one with a Wave.

I have used
Ozone - currently using. One with Airush lineset & one with Slingshot lineset
Slingshot - currently using a hybrid/bastardised
Mutiny
Liquid Force, standard and currently using bastardised

Girlfriend uses a bastardised North four line. Airush lines, Ozone depower rope/CL

A friend of mine uses a 4 line Best on his Varial X

The main thing to consider when using other bars is the pig tail connections, Ozone have the loop & knot the 'other' way round for what you need. So either make some 'changers' or buy the slingshot pig tail kit.

Thanks for all info. Luckily the pigtails and knots are the right way round 😀
