Does anyone find that skinny bar handles pass all the vibration from the kite through the bar or is it just me?
I had a core sensor 2 skinny bar and the difference in feel between that thing and my ozone thicker one was a lot. The ozone was so much nicer to fly with made the kites feel way less twitchy.
I have the same. But especially the older Ozone bars felt too spongy to me, made me feel disconnected from the kite. It all comes down to preference I guess...

Got to give some credit to the Reedin guy. Well explained. I was waiting for the question around sticking to come up, but after 6 mins he showed it himself. Obviously a question of taking his word for it, but it looked good in the video (around 6 mins in).

Thin bars are much much better than thick bars for people that kite in cold climates. My ability to kite for a long while is limited by grip. The thicker the control bar the harder it is in your grip. In warm climates a thick bar might be ok but where it's a bit colder a thick bar might cut your session short by hours since you have not only the thickness of your bar but also the thick gloves. When it's warm I also like the thin bars better but then I don't mind a thick bar too much. I've never felt vibration through the bar that seems a little odd
