Slingshot bar on Fone Bandit?

Postby wardr77 » Tue Mar 06, 2018 12:05 am

Does any one know if this configuration works well? Thinking typically 2016/17 Bandit on Slingshot Bar (under bar depower).

Many thanks.

No first hand knowledge, but based on that, no, they are not compatible.

Actually, the V (or Y) height will be off but it will be safe. Try it in light wind first to be sure. The Slingy bar is single front line release so almost any of the newish kites will work with it. Going the other way, older F-one bar with Slingy kite won’t work, as it releases to two front lines and needs the bridle to be part of the design. Might want to double check but I am pretty sure this is right.

Thanks for that chart, which seems to indicate that slingy bar with Fone kite is ok but not an Fone bar with slingshot kite...

Oops. Was reading it backwards.
