Shymac, I appreciate your positive attitude towards this issue, I am myself a rev rider after having used naish last year.shymac wrote:I will forward this topic to R & D.
I know this can be an issue but how many bars can you totally break down and upgrade, fix, or mod your bar out. I have been flying SLingshot even before i started working for them and never had an issue regarding the chicken loop. At least you have a chance to repair with little cost.
Really, when does stuff last for ever? Kiteboarding is very hard on gear and getting stuff to last has been an issue company's are trying to get there hands around. Cost, production, time, ect.... all are an issue.
The bad part is that you always get to hear the bad news then the good.
FYI - A little fuzz is acceptable/its just the rope being rope. If you have a tear or cut replace but fuzz ok.
Thanks for the input!
BTW, I'm seriously considering changing the whole bar.DMCD wrote:Hy,
i have the same opinion!
the only thing i dont like in the kite is the depower rope and location of the trimmer!
Im thinking in changing the depower rope and trimmer for some of other brand, i dont know yet.
im still searching for other sistems that can work well with the 5th line safety sistem of the REV.
SS should change that next year!
But the kite is so fu****g good... so... its a minimal problem!
If you find a good replacement please post it here. I am going to get the REVs, but if there is a good bar replacement that would be great.Zeno wrote:

Which one would you use in exchange?
one of the nice parts of the rev and its bar is the below the bar flag to one front line that worksjimmyc wrote:Before you go replacing the entire bar, why not try to just replace the CL assembly? Find the one that works for you and take the original out...
Dude this is a rope that is showing significant wear after 3 sessions - I am not asking this rope to last forever, but I have had bars that have lasted me well into a 3rd season. Lets see how this looks in a year. Also, yes I do have a chance to repair with very little cost but why should I?- this kite and bar is virtually brand new! I hate to moan but this needs to be looked at by you guys. You might be looking at a wide reaching issue here affecting many thousands of bars.shymac wrote: At least you have a chance to repair with little cost.
