Hello . I have a set of new pivots and at first I flew with the cabrinha trimlite bar. I had similar feelings like you. I have been using the original ATB 24m bar for a few months and it is completely different, feeling the kite is much better.
Before pivots I had a set of Cabrinha FX 2016 and definitely pivot is a much better kite
Mind comparing the FX and the Pivot? What didn't you like of the FX? I currently own a 14 FX, 12, 10 and 8 RPMs. I love the 14m and I am thinking in switching the 12 for an FX and the 10 and 8 for Pivots. I am trying to get some more lift compared to the RPMs (when I jump high on those I always need to do heliloops to avoid rough landings). My thinking is the 14 and 12 FX let me do both decent jumping and some unhooking when the winds are lighter and when its 10m and below I just focus on jumping and looping. I am ~200lbs and have decent tecnique.
Thanks in advance,
. I have pivots 9,12,14 from 2019 and 7, 10 from 2020 and I don't want to fly anything else. I have no problems with the octopus system. However, I have the impression that 2020 pivots are even more stable in gusty winds. Compared to FX, Pivot is more intuitive and friendly. Much better hangtime and wind range than FX. I feel much better with the pivot on the waves
