Looks nice Jannik.
Nicely done. The bare carbon strip for left right distinction I assume? Or where you out of cork...?

Yes, it is for distinction. I made some burning decoration tests that I wasn't satisfied with and I couldn't be bothered waiting to have colored cork delivered. So this was the solution I ended up with. I have since discovered some cork burning techniques which I might try to further add visibility.

put some red tape on at the end of the left side; might not look that fancy, but who cares.

Needed bars for my fone diablo kites but could not for the life of me afford over a £1000 to kit all 3 kites. I bought carbon fibre bars for €35 each from kitech and made my own leaders and depower section. All kites flying for under £150
