60cm bar with a takoon 12m reflex....will it work?

Yesterday had a great come back session after i broke a rib 4.5 weeks ago, got a seat harness (really impressed better than my normal harness), wind was about 12 - 22 knots, on my local lake. I was having a lot of fun, did about 35 ams in total and then did some jumps towards the end of the seesion 4 hours. After a jump a line just broke! the safety line....i just pulled on the o shit handle and kite was still. I had to then drift with the kite for over 2 kms before reaching land and then walk back 4kms with my wet kite, board and bar. Totally wrecked I got back home 4 hours later! to cut along story short I dont have a bar now (it was a gaastra x bar 2012) untill i get it mended or mend it under warrantee ......my only other bar is a 60 cm slingshot bar from my slingshot rev 2009 15m kite, would this bar work with my takoon 12m reflex due to how long it is, or should i just wait until the gaastra is up and running again (really wanted to go out on sunday again if possible)

has anyone had experience with using a 60 cm bar with 12m or 9m kites?

Thanks

As long as lines on the bar have equal length you should not have any problems.

it will work fine, one thing to be aware of is that the kite may not be designed in a way that it works well with a huge bar like that. ive flown a kite that worked fine with a large bar when i forgot my small one, but it would sometimes stall slightly for some reason, like it couldn't fly fast enough to keep up with the turning or something. not a big deal, just something to be aware of that might happen
