Because only a fool would buy a complete quiver of kites with lines and bars. That would be a waste of $200 per kite (x 4 kites = $600.00 wasted)
But then again, you probably get your kites at dealer cost. Now wonder it makes sense to you.
A well designed quiver of kites will fly perfect on the same length bar. Some designers have yet to achieve this (Slingshot for example, ouch, sorry Johnny)
Dude, Thanks for your kind words. I always appreciate being called a fool!
You don't have to be "OUCH, sorry Johnny" for any of what you say here. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion and I wont try to make you defend yourself for stating yours. I'm not all about that.
I do get a new bar with every kite that comes my way, I will not deny that, however, I don't use them all. Most of them stay sealed in their plastic bag until I sell my used kite to someone who may need it with a bar...they get a new bar with it.
Not sure what's the matter with the SlingShot's that you are flying Dwight, but personally, I fly ALL of mine on one size bar length. Even when I do break out a second bar, it's usually the same length as the one I am currently using. I fly 10m, 12m, 14m, & 16m Fuels all on the same bar. The only time I reach for a differ bar is when I fly the 8m or 6m kites and it's windy as hell, then I go down to a shorter bar.
This is all opinionated stuff for the most part. You may be right in your own right, but then, Royce and myself may be right in our own right too. It's all a matter of preference.
