Loving the proscriptive tone (sic) of the post, that's a nice little earner for Duotone isn't it?I highly recommend the following rules for all kite models:
Use the small bar on kites 4m² to 10m². Use the wider bar on kites 11m² to 17m². Since the wider bar also comes with 2m longer lines than the small bar, the low-wind abilities are noticeably improved. In my eyes, a 49cm bar should not be flown with an 8m² kite as the steering input and precision is not on the same handling level as it would be on the 42cm version.
A "shaking bar"? I was going to say that I've now heard it all but I'm sure I haven't. Unfortunately.A wider bar on a small kite - like an 8m² - will give you an imprecise feeling under strong and turbulent conditions. This is due to the fact that there is always a certain movement between the rider and the kite, especially in rough sea conditions. This movement results into a shaking bar which will give you the feeling of being disconnected from the kite. It’s a bit like having power steering that’s too soft in your car. It’s not precise enough around the middle axis.
Even if it were possible to make a width adjustable Click bar where's the profit in selling one bar instead of two?Barryg101 wrote: ↑Thu Aug 23, 2018 9:37 pmWhy doesn't this bar just have adjustable size like most of the other bars on the market today?
Seems strange that you need to own two bars when most the other brands have an adjustable bar width , which is much better in my opinion.
Maybe there's a reason that there is no adjustable on this bar if so please inform me as I'm very interested as to why?
For example I will buy a whole quiver of kites and specifically choose a brand that has a one bar does it all so that I don't need to buy two bars . So my dollar goes to another brand that makes plenty of profit , no marketing needed just a decent innovative design .Even if it were possible to make a width adjustable Click bar where's the profit in selling one bar instead of two?
I didn't say it couldn't be done, I said "where's the profit in selling one bar instead of two". In any case, the wider bar comes with longer lines so it's lose lose.
Since the wider bar also comes with 2m longer lines than the small bar,

Sorry.Faxie wrote:I wasn't replying to you
Yeah, the more bars sold, the better... there will probably not be a lot of people that will choose another brand because of adjustable floats.
