A logical development of the 2015 I believe, but 2017, ah that will be a huge leap forward ........ ;)

ROFLMAO, somehow I doubt it. The Cab team seems to be out of touch, it took till 2014 (arguably 2015) to fix their flag line and weight reduction does not seem to even be on their radar....
still stuck on the bungee pull/pull... I wonder how much they spent on the bar width adjusters... nice idea but not practical when there are much easier simpler ways to do the same thing... KISS

I heard no change in the velocity except color. Rumor has it the new color will give it better low end :)

Yup, it seems the desire to appear to be innovative gives us overly complicated products which are an ever more expensive and sometimes less durable solution than what they replaced. To be fair this applies to more than Cab.

It can be said for many, but to me Cab has won the award for overcomplicated "innovation"....and then there are companies like OR and Flexifoil who cannot seem to catch up to even the most basic and simple bar options/upgrades. It baffles my mind...
Most of my opinions on this subject are bar related by the way.

Speaking of colors, I hope they bring back the "Wildcard" color :thumb:

The Cab bar is not perfect, but I still like it better than most. The new Chicken loop is a keeper, below bar swivel also. The depower system may be very different than most but when out on the water it works nicely, The straps are neat and streamlined and always in the same place right in front of your face not flopping around like others. I also like the spring which allows you much more depower throw than any other bar when needed. And last you have to like the new flag out system with no extra line , very clean indeed...
