Fully agree with you WaveRider001!
Despite the fact that I am a "European kiter" :naughty: , I have chosen to use a 2013 bar equipped with 20m lines with my 2013 Park quiver (this lines length was available through a special order).
Maybe 24m is OK for freeride or freestyle, but 20m is a must for Waveriding and smaller size kites. :thumb:

+1 on the 20 meter lines. I got an extra set of 20m lines.

If I see it right they could let people just choose line lengths when getting a bar. Then set it up in the shop. Would take about 2 mins, and the shops gets to add a bit of upselling time. :-)

Thanks for your support! On smaller sizes (8m/6m) I love shorter lines for freestyle too. Kiteloops are so much more fun! Especially unhooked kitloops with my 8m Park...

@taut: I hope you are right. I don´t want to buy 2 bars and then pay another few hundrets for 20m line sets... I think I have to keep my extensions anyway when I sell my 2012 kites. So, I can order 20m lines and still use my extensions for bigger sizes...

Aloha, Joerg

woa, that is the shape of the Park? Any call on the differences? I have a fellow kiter here who tried it, but he wasn't sure about a direct comparison to 2013 as he has never ridden a park that small.
