How compatible is the Xbow2 bar when used on CO2 (2003)?

Postby thorbirtley » Mon Mar 16, 2009 12:26 pm

Hi folks,

I've got a Cabrinha Xbow 2 with a Powerdrive 221 controlbar. I love it!

I've also just received an old CO2 from 2003 without a bar or lines, just the kite. Is it possible to just connect the powerdrive 221 setup on to the CO2? If not, what modifications would be necessary, such as extender lines from the kite, etc...?

Many thanks!
Thor

The bar is not compatible because it is a 2:1 bar with pulleys and a long depower line and the CO2 is a 1:1 bar with a short depower line.

Ahh... that's disappointing news.
If I wish to use the CO2, I'll have to keep my eyes open for a bar/line setup that better fits.
Thanks anyhow CabDriver :-)
