Looking at these numbers , I don't see a huge problem using a regular low V bar type like Ozone bar and 23 meters lines . This is what I had found with North .
I think we should start a survey over High Y and low V to see who in reality use a bar equipped with a high Y for a kite designed for a High Y bar .
Why get complicated and design kites with high Y when a simple Low V is cleaner and simple .

Use a standard 4 line bar and attach an adjustable ring for the Y line.
It works a treat as well as being able to fine tune your kites performance...
I forgot to use the Y ring on my 9m in 35ish knots, flew ok, leading edge flares more and turns a little slower though, as expected. My setting is always around a foot higher than spec, jumps more stable, loops better turns faster :thumb:
