Is the depower too much short for you?
I got a 60cm bar and more you depower less the bar work in vertical direction because the depower is too short?
Is my bar or is for anybody the same?

What do you mean? When you depower you can't steer the kite anymore?
Which bar do you have? North 62cm bar?

the big toro turns nice and fast even when fully sheeted out. i use a 20?" airush bar on mine and it works fine.

I think the original poster was commenting on the strange depowering system that comes with the north bar. i have never flown with it, but instead of having a chicken loop line attached to a depower strap, the chicken loop line simply becomes the depower strap. ie, if you pull on the strap to depower, your chicken loop range gets smaller also. Hard to explain, but i tried :smile:

It's the problem with the original rodeo bar. I modified mine: now the length of depower is always the same (about 35cm), even if you adjust front lines length with the strap. If you make this transformation, don't forget to ajust your back lines!
The result is very nice and my Rhino 16 is now much more comfortable!

I suppose last post answers your question.
