I have used nothing but cabrinha since 2016. I have 3 bars. Its a matter if feel. In doubt go medium.
If further in doubt, measure the distance to see what 52 cm vs 60cm looks like. It isnt very much. We are use to thinking in inches, but more and more i have been ditching the imperial measurement to the more accurate socialist metric system! Lol

Use what you have. Move hand towards or away from center..... go kite.

I always went with Cab's recommended bar size chart. Seemed to work just fine. 52cm for 12m SB.

I have never seen that chart! That is great! I am going to print it and tape it somwhere.

I printed the following and have a small copy taped to my pump as a guide:

Kite pump pressure
19-17 = 4-5psi
15-13m= 5-6? Psi
12-11m=6-7psi
10-9m= 7-8psi
8-7m = 8-9psi
6.0 and smaller= 10-11psi
