How many kite control bars do kite companies sell annually?

Postby SupaEZ » Sat Jun 15, 2013 10:04 pm

Let's say that kites outnumber control bars 2 to 1 for most people

Here is the amount of bars given by Epic
2010.......2063 bars sold.............. (my estimate of 2 to 1 equals 4126.... if kites were included)
2011 & 3G.....5012 bars sold.......(my estimate of 2 to 1 equals 10,024 ...if kites were included)

Doesn't that seem high for the bars/lines?
How does this compare with other kite companies as far as bars are concerned?

How many bars does....North sell...Naish sell..Slingshot sell...Core sell..Cabrinha sell....
......just to name a few....and how about Blade?

Bars sold doesn't necessarily equate to kites sold. Theft, people leaving bars at launch sites, damaged bars/lines account for bar sales too.

Two bars for my three cab kites, one bar for my OR kite (but will be one for two when I get a Razor 12), one for my unused 7m Core :(, one each for my Flysurfers. Had 2 bars for 3 kites with my arcs too.
