Anyone used a Dreamstick X or F-one Linx 2022 yet?

Wondering if anyone can provide user feedback on either of these? Both are using a nearly identical setup through the bar and look like an ideal setup providing centre PU doesn’t stick when turning like the Click bar does.

Hi. I have already tested dreamstick X. This bar is very comfortable. It moves smoothly, lightly and without jamming. The unscrewing itself works great.

Thanks - that’s good enough for me, need to convert to a high y but the Duotone splitter should do that.

Great - thanks. Was slightly disappointed F-one haven’t moved to a Click in loop now but otherwise it’s a straight toss up between the two I think, other than F-one already has adjustable V.

Linx 2022 doesn't seem to have auto-swivel.. It has a single PU but no centerhole that untwists automatically like the click bar and the reedin...

You’re right the website does seem to infer that, which I don’t understand as the centre PU line looks exactly like the Dreamstick X. It mentions auto untwist of the safety line, which considering this is one of the front lines doesn’t make sense to me that it would automatically untwist the centre lines too. Confusing.

Fone always a few years behind with bar features sadly.have they moved to a softer hand grip yet. Misses Lynx bar gives you sore hands quickly.

Had a look on the bar last weekend. The center lines are still manual to untwist. Only the centerline it's now auto untwist, which is a good thing. There is a big hole in the bar so you can the square PU line rotate manually.

So already something on the bucket list for fone for the next years. Autountwist for center lines and a click in chicken loop.

Also had a look on the new slider an the bandit 2022, sadly still wearing the bridle :(

Just had my first session with the dream stick x. Superb bar, Fantastic. Absolutly no stiff rubbing bits on the centre line like the duotone. Loved the diameter of the bar. Couldnt get much better. Be nice if they had more color coded lines but thats a minor issue. Love love the bar. Im flying it with my edge v10s
