So Duotone, says hi y, what about the click bar? You can run that as a V single line flag out, I assume that is ok.
According to their specs - the position of the split is adjustable, so you can run it any way you want.

Re: (4 lines) Kites VS Bars compatibility chart - 2018+

New north? Do they have bars already? Watch their videos - it's a variation of the older BW bar which was used by OR, GIN and others a few years back... anyhow, that's what they are flying wiith for now, it's a standard 4 lines with a V-split and a single-front-line release. Nobody says that this i...

(4 lines) Kites VS Bars compatibility chart - 2018+

Due to yet another surge of "can i use bar AAA with BBB kite?" topics, I've updated the chart i've made a while ago the gist of which comes down to: -In 2019 you can safely and effectively fly any 4 lines kite on any 4 lines bar, though not all combinations are "ideal" -All differences between bars ...

Re: Best Wetsuit : O'neill pyrotech ?

I'm with stupids who said: 1)your temperature range is too wide. There's no steamer on the market today which would cover this kind of temperatures, whatever you will get - will be a compromise - either a tad too cold - or waaaay toooo warm. I started with a single suit - but with experience it came...

Re: Twintip for choppy water

+1 for the Monk or BronQ Funny thing is - once the initial euphoria of getting a new board passes - you will stop noticing how smooth the Monk is until taking some other non-Shinn board for a ride - you'll be in a for a surprise... And yes - what you'll gain in knees comfort - you'll loose in upwind...

Re: Best bar ever made? LF Mission V3

Does anybody with real hands-on experience has anything with sense in it to contribute? I used to kick F-One's butt for their ultra-safe, velcro release - all while owning F-one kites. Problem is - in over 3 seasons I haven't activated the release even once. Hence - I don't quite understand - what d...

Re: does anyone else care about linear bar response?

Unless you ride in some idyllic conditions where water is always flat, wind is steady withing 0.25knots and women's farts smell like flowers - the subject of this topic has no meaning.

Re: Cuba or Colombia in March

My point was really only about the wind: the wind in Cabarete in the winter is different from the wind in Cuba because of the position relative to the trade flow & the northerly frontals. I've been going to Cabarete regularly since 1987. In the last 12 years I have spent about 7 months cumulatively...

Re: Cuba or Colombia in March

In contrast, in my month in Cabarete from Dec 20th - to Jan 21st there were 26 kiting days out of 32. 16 of those on a 9m or 8m kite (on a SB), upper teens to low 20 knots - you might have been on a 12m, but fully powered up. The other days I was on an 11m, winds mid teens to high teens. I believe ...

Re: Cuba or Colombia in March

I’m going to disagree with the Cuba low wind comments. You were lucky. I've been visiting Cuba 1-2X per year since 2007: -Only once we had a true 7 out of 7 - "can't kite anymore by day 3" kind of trips -Everything else was always hit and miss averaging 2-3 days out of 7 of ridable (12m kite at big...
