Can I use a 45cm bar on Waroo 13m2 2008?

Postby hansvanloon » Wed Feb 27, 2008 12:47 pm

Hi,

I already have a Waroo 9m2 with a 45cm bar.
I'm going to buy a Waroo 13m2 2008, do I need a 55cm bar for this kite?

Is the kite to slow with a 45cm bar? Do I lose low end because of this?

Greetings,

Hans

dude!!! ofcorse you can!!!!!! 55cm bars SUCK!!!! it might be a bit slower on the 45 and depending on how long youv bin riding you may not realy notice the diffrent anyway but id take a bit slower over using the 55....be better if your learning first tricks like backrolls and stuff.... even if you didnt like it use it for a bit save some coin and get the bar later if you rally gotta have a 55cm !!!! :thumb:

I use a 55 cm bar exclusively on my 9, 12, and 16. But..... I would say, if you already have a 45 cm, then save your money and try it before buying a new bar.

Last year I flew my 13 Waroo Pro on a 45. This year I fly a 13 Waroo on a 55 and like it better. Turns faster and I think less bar pressure. If you have the dough buy it if not it will still fly good.

I travel a lot, so have waroo07 - 7, 9, 13, 17, 20.

I like the 55cm bar a bit better on the 13, but could go either way.

45cm bars suck!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I had a 13 and 9 Waroo with a 55 cm bar, the 9 was great but even with the 55cm bar the 13m turned soooooooooooo slow.
Have since sold the 13 Waroo with the 55cm bar and brought a 45 cm bar for the 9, wished I'd kept the 55cm bar now, the 9 flies alot better on the 55cm bar - wouldn't wat to fly the 13 on a 45 cm bar :-?

I'd rather have a 55 for both than a 45

Yea sure. You can tow a trailer with a VW bug too.
