Best bar does not work with 2014/12 parks

Postby Drew22 » Sun Dec 07, 2014 6:30 am

It works fine with my Cabo's of course, no over sheeting etc. When I hook it up to my 2012 14 park and my 2014 7m the kite is extremely over sheeted. My buddy uses a Cab bar with his parks and it works fine, I was under the impression they were all equal line lengths. I Pretty much have to 100% depower the kite to get it to the point that sheeting in doesn't back stall.

I have to use extensions so my lines match up but they are all equal length. I guess I'm just going to shorten my outside extensions till I find the sweet spot. I was just wondering if anyone else had this issue or know if there is a cm/inch difference between outside and inside lines on the Naish bar?

This is a 2013 Best RP bar.

Should be equal length.

I've seen people mod. backlines running them through the back attachment effectively making backline attachment shorter.

Kites vary slight, even my different year Torches need different settings on the same bar, just adjust the lines to suit the kite, job done :thumb:

Having the same issues with 2015 rides.. 14" off on rear lines. Naish kinda made it right, sent out longer leaders but they were still 8" short. I have ended up just making new leaders out of amsteel for all of my brand new 2015 naish kites. It really sucks because I dont have the machinery to properly sew my splices. Every time I take these new expensive kites out I am wondering when I'm going to have a rear line come disconnected :(

Put a drop of superglue on the splice and you are golden.
