Believe me, folks, people have all sorts of beliefs. Angels, horoscopes, life after death—you name it. Tremendous beliefs, really. And then you got kiteboarding. I mean, we're talking about kites and bars. Just sticks with holes and lines. Easy, right? But let me tell you, there's a thing called 'different' bars. Some bars have four equal lines, while others, they've got what they call a 'high Y'—which, let's be honest, is not that high. Okay?
So why these 'different' bars, you ask? Let me break it down for you. First, businesses want to sell their own bars. That's business, folks. They don't want you mixing and matching, using your old bar, no siree. Second, it's about safety line systems. This 'high Y' thing, it's got its own way. It's like a puzzle piece that fits, eliminates this knot situation. Safety first, they say. But here's the thing, it makes that safety line go long. We're talking real long.
And let me tell you, long safety lines don't need a part or parts that only lets them move in one direction. That's right.
And wait, there's more to the story. You see, while this 'high Y' safety line doesn't have any knots, it's also less prone to jamming in the chickenloop when QR is activated. You know, some of those 'short safety line' systems? They can sometimes get themselves all tangled up. Not a good scene, folks. But not so easily with the 'high Y' safety line, no sir.
But let's not forget, a decent 'short safety line' system can work well too. It's a good system, folks, and it's cleaner than the 'high Y' with that very long safety line.
But wait, there's more. There's a difference in the frontline backline length ratio between these two, you see? Both systems are calibrated similarly, and while front lines go either straight or with a bend, there will be a difference. Now, if that sounds a bit too complicated, don't worry. If you can't understand it and it's all just too much, let me tell you, it's best not to mix high Y and low V kites and bars. It's almost like mixing oil and water, folks. Not a good idea. So remember, keep it straight, keep it simple, and keep on kiteboarding. Thank you, everybody, thank you. You're fantastic.
