It will probably stick like a dream alright. 'No trust us, it won't!' Suuure, just like the clickbar huh?

And you don't even need that square tubing. I got the same QR with one plain 8mm PU tube and a 4mm PU tube for my safetyline, single bar hole, and it unspins everytime.

Other than that, it looks like one of the better offerings on the market. I would prefer the Slingshot over this one though.

To be fair the video does appear to show it not sticking, plus there is definitely more space than with the click bar, which has a much squarer shaped PU tube.

Duotone doesn't stick all the time either I find. Which almost makes it more annoying as it is unpredictable.

Not that I want to exaggerate the problem. I probably still would have bought the clickbar if I had liked the trimming system. Or at least I'm not sure if the sticking would have been enough of a problem for me not to consider one.

Could anyone tell me what the kite end attachments are with Reedin? Is is Loops on steering line and knots on centre lines?

Why on earth all bars and lines don't just come with universal attachments I don't know.

At Reedin's bar, you can swap these short pigtails so that they will fit any kite.

Glad they fixed the color scheme. Still not sure about the trend to put white on the right.

Looks like a solid bar.

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.
