Ig you not boosting more than 5-6 meter jumps than in general are no need for pro sk99 or similar lines. And of course Duotone doing it for masses not for pro or everyday riders.
Not sure why you would think that.
AFAIK the problem is the lines degrade too quickly. You still have this regardless of how high you jump. Probably looping the kite has way more impact then jumping due to friction on the lines while they are crossed.
If you think it is safe to have worn lines as long as you do not jump high I have news for you: There are plenty situations where equipment failure can create sketchy situations really quick.
Think launch/landing (near hard surfaces), big breaking waves, being far out on the water, at busy spots near other kiters etc.
Simply put: your lines should not be sketchy because you will put yourself or others in danger.
Having something that wears quickly at this price is not something I would expect or be a happy with.
If it was a 300 euro bar maybe but not at 600+
