Nice video. A friend has one and the click in reload is nice. Like the tool less inter loop.

I noticed the lines are two pieces. Now I know why.

High quality equal length lines. Easy to replace. Are you listening duotone?

I think the left float should be red, and the outside lines are both green? Why not red on the left?

yes, would be a good orientation, while looking at the lines, swimming.

But sometimes just a thing of availiability (by suplier), for example liros which maybe it (at least pigtails are dpro I would think). Sometimes they run just short in high volumen of colors since years...

Possibly, but I ve only seen red and blue as stock colors so green was likely a special order. My guess is the large companies place their order well in advance and aren’t buying off the shelf stock. Otherwise you. Would have a variety of colors.

I believe it was a design decision.

I’ve had bars with all lines the same color.

Personally i prefer left and right rear lines different colors both on land, in the air, and in the water.
