You're 100% correct of course. As others have said, we don't hear the pro riders complaining about swivels either, it's a non-issue for them.Starsky wrote: ↑Fri May 19, 2017 2:54 pmHave had many and still have a stock bar with a swivel. Can honestly say they aren't necessary, and I bet that many would prefer not having them once they get used to it. My foil/wave bars don't have em. I don't do a lot of rotations, but I loop the kite a ton. Do it in both directions and it kind of sorts itself. What actually takes more effort, reaching up to smack a stuck swivel, or glancing at your lines every once and a while and deciding to downloop the next transition...
That was my experience when I bought the Wainman swivel. I was like, "damn! this thing really is smooth." Then I installed it and it wasn't any different than the one it replaced in practice.
