I ride obsessions 2012 to 2014 and my mate just got some 2015's. He said they changed the line lengths on the bar, so moving the "Y" point..... grrrrr...!!!! apparently you need to buy a 2015 bar for the 2015 kite.... :angryfire: and they are expensive!

I use the older V5 bar on both my 2014 and 2015 Obsessions - no issues

I have '15 Obsession & v6 bar and i'm pretty sure that lines length are same as v5 bar.

Kite review. well i'm upwind stage with it, n00b basically so words on how it performs to ride/jump are useless but got some opinions:

I think it has great low end :) Once, there was guys on 15m while i was on 9m. Lets say about 12-16 knots of gusty wind i was able to ride well powered up.. light guy 70kg, "normal" sized board..

On most power setting on pulleys bar pressure is heavy, really heavy. Can't be even compared with North in general. Build quality is decent, not bomb proof but not bad construction at all. Kite is compact/light. Funny looking, in fact i hated how it looks (orange one) but started to love it after few session, you don't need to look at it to see it.. red/orange/blue, so bright..

Worst thing. Bag. Bag looks like shit & is made of shit. In fact, if you have some another kite bag, you will forget that you got bag with it. I would make better for same amount of money.

Best thing: it got me upwind, feels good, it's so bright that rescues can really easily see that you are in danger so i'm happy with it. It's cheeper than most brands.. at least in my area + 2years warranty.. well we'll see
