Any news about the new bar?

It was supposed to be my birthday gift now late and switched to Christmas gift...

The old bars are fine.
Please don't follow the pack with a weaker Pu coated depower.🙏 The CS2 bar is awesome super strong fast replacement if needed.
But looks like you are going down the Pu track.
The new slingshot sentry bar V1 is double Pu so at least you know that the depower isn't a thinner weaker line.
Like some brands have currently.
And are now breaking.
One crack or split in that Pu casing and it's game over.

I don’t mean to ruin your impression, but I thought the Sentry only has the one PU coated main line, and the other parallel line is just a tube for the thin safety line. There is no third thin safety line, so the single flag line MUST run thorough one of the PU tubes.

It has 2 Pu coated but it's a double depower line.
If you look at the product video.
So added strength so they say.
And yes a safety does probably runs through one. As can't see the safety running through by itself.
Not hating everyone has their opinion on Pu coated lines.
All good just hope new Eleveight has same strength and weight load as non Pu coated.
