I use the 65cm bar, the 80cm bar is a good bar when you use bridles, I use it but I prefer to ride with the 65cm. Good wind
I also have the Skoop 12.5, my problem is that in light wind <11 knots, i cant go upwind, I can manage to go back to where i came from. It seems like the kite wont fly far enough out in the window, and just "drags me downwind. The "fun" thing is that i can easyli do 10 foot jumps. i ride it without the bridle system, with 29 m lines, i tried 35 m it just got worse.
I ride a directional with big fins, and flying upwind with the RRD type IV 19 m2 in the same conditions.
When the 12.5 starts working for me, i'd rather sail the 8.5
