Using 11m lines on my 11 and 13, 13m lines on my 17m and 13 or 15m lines on my 21m (depending if lighter or not) R1V2 kites. I feel shorter lines give more control at speed and faster maneuvers.

Do you guys use this special race-oriented chicken loop system or just a normal one? I am a bit confused about all this superlight carbon bar, special chickenloop, leash, etc - how does it differ from a regular setup? Is it really necessary in the beginning?
Standard Ozone race bar works great!
