It all seems a bit silly to me, but maybe I'm missing something. As long as the outside lines are same length(2) and power lines are same length(2) then the way the kite fly can be adjusted with trimming the kite no? I even have my center lines slightly longer so i have a quick blast of power if i want(will stall if held to long). I hear people at the beach talk about "2nd knot" on the rear pigtail and so on, but it seems to be a mute point, as once again you can just trim your kite while your flying it to get the right sweet spot. Am I, or have i been missing something all along?

2nd knot just ensures you have extra front line length to add power. It also increased chances of a stall / over sheeting but so long as you are aware of this it's very popular option.

In general I like this bar. Lean, clean and simple.
Not sure if all cousins have a high Y

I could be wrong, but Switch's new C4X bar looks suspiciously similar...
