I am not feeling the throw is too short.
It is for example the same like F-One.
Especially for the North Kites you don’t need a longer throw and the other point is, if you make it longer many people are not able to reach the adjuster. For example for my girl. And she is using the small North Loop.
Drift is really good. I have a 7m Carve for foiling and wave riding in smaller waves. I use it with the foil starting at 13/14 knots. I like the comfort of the Carve. Thats really nice. From 8-13/14 knots I use my Naish Boxer. In stronger winds it jumps really nice too. Tried it two weeks ago in 30 ...
I have used my navigator bar for around 25 strong wind sessions now.
Very comfortable und there are no signs of using the bar. Very good until now. My Fone Bars had the first signs of using after the 5th session lately.
