It's only $375 complete 54" Bar, from Montreal with a good safety system and a lot of depower.
I'm just changing to this on my Flysurfer Kites to get rid of the original lame infinity bar :idea:

There is a Thread about this here:

Save some money and buy this set of North bar and lines for $20:
http://www.ebay.com/itm/NORTH-KITEBOARDING-KITE-LINES-BAR-AND-CHICKEN-LOOP-4-LINE-kite-27m-OR-30yds-/290953489580?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item43be2decac

:o :o :o

Is this really a bar and lines that North produced at some point (circa 1999?) Or did this guy make this in his basement?

Trim straps on the rear lines? What appears to be a piece of clothes line tied to the bar with a clove hitch???

Just pray that the new guy at your beach doesn't buy it!

Been using my North 2013 bar for Vegas for sometime now in retrospect the bar is worth every penny. I pay for my gear. Of course I wish bars were 200 dollars still.

Awesome and it's in Canada eh! One more question, what is the flag distance when you release? For the new Epic kites 6m is optimum, but 4m works....

When I say flag distance I mean e distance the bar will travel up the lines before it hits a stopper

Are you talking front line?
depends a bit on the bridle, but the distance should be about length of your kite for complete safety.

Sorry I sent mine to one of my friend with a kite for testing and only looked at it once.
But one of the front line comes directly through the CL where you connect the bypass leash,
so I believe it fully depowers and the bar goes all the way up on that one line,
when you let the bar go.

Here is a link and you can see in the middle when the QR is activated:
