The reedin is great in everything except the lines, they could be better, also the first reedin bar had a strange shape that was hard to wrap the lines around it without slipping, the second version fixed that.

Do you know what lines is Reedin using? These seem more sturdy than one Sk99 in DT bars

They are from this company, not sure if they are SK99, but I would wager they are not

Above link is for their polyester sleeved lines.

These are the flying lines in question (TLS400/TLS500): https://www.cousin-trestec.com/en/produ ... stretch-2/
If you look carefully you will notice that they are not Dyneema, but some other HMPE (or UHMWPE as it is commonly known). From the specs shown they look simiar to SK75/SK78 lines.

I repair/replace lines on all bar makes every week, and these new lines have raised a few questions, the questions being asked of me is if I can replace the section of lines that cross over each other a few meters up with a more durable line, after asking about how old their bars are I was surprised how little use their new bars had seen, but the owners were very unhappy at the line decay caused by simple kite spinning, yes it happens on all lines, I myself have removable 3 mtr sections on my own lines that I use for my kite foil kites, which I spin a lot when on my foil board so can change them as they fur up, but these owners are claiming the lines show wear after a few sessions.
it may be a problem, and more so if you spin your kite like most foil board users, or wave board riders.
need more owners to report back on these lines.

Definitely not a bar to trust...
Is this some kind of bad joke or a rant? You are posting a bar that clearly was involved in some sort of accident and then you write "definitely not a bar to trust"? I rather not trust you and I am almost 100% certain that the damage we are seeing here is not Duotone´s fault.
