I love my 2012 ids Cabrina control bar and was wanting to use it with my buddies 2010 liquid force havoc. Will it work?

The Cabrinha IDS bar flags to two front lines which requires a special bridle arrangement on the kite, whereas I'm pretty sure LF uses a single front line for flagging on their bars with no fancy bridle setup. While the IDS bar may *fly* the kite, it will not flag it if you get into trouble and hit the primary QR. The only safety release would be to disconnect yourself from the kite completely. So, this is probably a bad idea.
