... my favorite bit is I can loop the kite as many times as I like and noooooo twisting of any lines.
I do have three minor complaints about the otherwise very clean and addicting bar.
I'd like the adjustment to be half as long. Since it is a backline 1:1 system vice the 1:2 frontline cleat, and since it adjusts in discreet increments, I would kind of like a second step.
Untwisting is cool, but it comes a price and is a bit sticky when agressive turning of the kite and sheeting out. My normal method was to use one hand but now use two hands so I can push out. I'd probably trade untwisting for smoother sheeting while turning. Because also, if you don't get your front lines to the vee untwisted before you launch, you can't straighten them out
And last, I think the left floaty should be dominantly red instead of light blue with a little bit of red. There is so much red around I think North got a bit cute with the color scheme. My slow mind doesn't always pick out the direction of the bar immediately.
I did write to North about these concerns and was told they would be shared with the design team. I thought that was an excellent response.
Again, really nice to have such a clean bar with nothing dangling around.
