I wanted to hear reasons not to change my setup. One person saw the same wear on the trimlite. The other person reminded me why i liked the recoil system to begin with, it returns the bar to a set position. Me like this😁 i went ahead and bought a new 12m kite last night from greenhatkiteboarding, but had to hold off on the new bar, after all, i have two bars anyway. Thanks everyone.

Been using Trimlite after hesitantly moving away from the recoil and personally I feel that the trimlite bar is uncluttered, light and easy to use. Gradually got out of all my recoils and now just use the trim. As far as longevity I have had no issues with 2017, 2018 and 2019 versions. I don't leave them lying around in the sun on the sand, always wash with fresh water and dry them after use. No issues.

Forgot the most important point: works better if you hold the bar "upside down" and wrap the lines around the "bottom" of the bar, pushing the tube/QR to one side of the wrap.
