That Bar sucks and is a high Y bar and should be used only with a Core kite of the same year because of it's safety system design.
Here is how the core bars work:

1 power line gets pulled 4.5m (100%) and the other one 2.25m (50%) making it a system somewhere in between double and single line flagout but does definitely not flag on kites with fixed or minimal pulley bridles.
There is nothing to like or not about double front line flagout. The kites it is designed for have bridles that are fully supported by pulleys on long bridles so they can tilt all the way back once the load is gone on the back lines. Most modern tube kites have gone the route of minimal bridle design with only 1 pulley at most that can travel 1m maximum.
Letting the backlines go slack by a few meters only gives the same effect as pushing the bar out while maximum trimmed and thus won't kill the power in high winds making the use of a double line flagout bars on those kites extremely dangerous!
