I use vegas and rebel with low V bars..and its better feeling than the Y...i have the original bar too and dont like...more direct control with V..
That's mostly because you're basically more powered... bar is calibrated with lines straight, Y vs V is a higher angle, thus shorter.

Hey Dan, can you explain the V distributer? How low of a V can you achieve ?( Can I easily reach either of the front lines individually to self land?) Is bar compatible with all other brand kites that require a "low V"?

thanks

Hey slow boat , I have a Click bar and use it on my Ozone Reo’s and I have removed all the gizmos so that the lines split at the end of the plastic covered depower line .
So similar to other four line bars !

Thanks, that is what I needed to know. I assume this can be done with the 2018 model?

It is super easy on the 2018 compared to 2017.

Why do I keep seeing pictures of Airton on his Facebook page with what looks like a click bar and a low vee?

Ken Winner and Dan at Duotone have said Neo's supposedly run better with a low V so I assume Airton removed the V stopper so it split at the bottom? I was actually looking at removing this stopper on my click bar as well since I agree I think my Neo ran better on my Naish low split bar before I bought the Clickbar.

Is that what people are doing, just removing the stopper altogether? How do you do it? Do you have to remove the lines off the leaders to slide it off?

Simply undo the thumb screw first and then the thicker short attachment pigtails at the ends and slide the little splitter off the end of the lines,
I have a bag full of them now as you get 2with every bar,
I have not yet found a way of removing the little 5th line guide ring at the top of the depower PU ine, not that it gets in the way, it is just not needed.

Has someone tried the low V with the Rebel?
I would like to fly it with open v because of self landing.
