good question.
this is the first shipment I saw from Takoon in the stores.
how old are the pics at the Takoon site, or do they show already the new delivery?

I will ask Takoon.

I think you missed the arrow at the bottom of the bar page, it takes you to the TakooBar which offers a two line to four line kit, hence the outboard chicken loop.

nice visuals, but I think the Takoon web site is a little over designed, I keep accidentaly jumping to different pages.

My shop still does not have the Takoon Skoop's. So also not the bars. Takoon also did not respond on my emails.

Does anybody know what the barsizes will be?

I have bars and Kites. The Skoop is currently arriving with the TakooBar pictured above.The bars are fine and the safety is very good with all the quick release on tap.

The 80cm Bar that comes with the 10.5 works fine but is too big imho. The kite turns plenty fast enuff on 55cm.

The kite is all good. Very light, fast and stable with a huge wind range. I have been well powered with the 6.5 (8.9 flat) from 15 knots to 30+ knots on the same 148 Pitbull.
The kite remains well composed and precise in all conditions. Boost and hangtime are epic.

Try one if you get the chance :smile:

So what are all the barsizes available?
I'm looking for a Takoon bar of 50 and 60cm long.

I have only seen 65cm and 80cm. Best go for the 65cm.
