Re: switch kite alternatives

Big brand's previous years on sale? LF's previous years seem to go for peanuts - at least in North America and they are solid. I've been using Zeeko Rev-s in smaller sizes since 2016 - that is side by side with Airush and Ozone kites - and honestly - Zeeko gear was on pars and sometimes better in te...

Re: New Flysurfer Stoke and new Bar

Well, I wouldn't necessarily call it a "copy" as FS is simply using the same supplier who was making last gen BEST and NORTH bars. Whatever goes in the background - stays in the background - perhaps they just flat out bought the rights from BEST? It's a nice design after all and FS have vastly impro...

Re: New Flysurfer Stoke and new Bar

Nice "new" bar... :thumb: Curtesy of what's left from BEST... :lol: :D

B.t.w. Airush's stopper doesn't do anything. Got 2 of their bars and on both the "stopper" is a decoration piece.

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.
