I though he tried that back in 05.

Toby was all about the X-Shooter masterpiece bar

For some reason it never caught on!

The Masterpiece had its advantages and disadvantages.
But it had a remote release for handle pass leashes...which til today no bar had.

For me short bars should be standard for all lessons with smaller kites.
BIG market there. Make some with holes and sell for Airstylers. Not much extra costs involved.

But, not my problem, I have many old bars which I can shorten and reuse. Just sad for those who want to get better in Airstyle and don't have the according gear.

And no company is producing it...very sad for the sport.
Hey Toby - so essentially you just removed the iron heart / chicken loop (with rotor) from your old bar and attached it to the new wakestyle bar. How easy or hard was this to do. Seems pretty simple...well, much more so than attempting to retrofit a microhook onto a newer bar. I'm thinking that if I can find an older chicken loop/iron heart I will be able to finally get this thing going. BTW - I have the new Best bar and have drilled the holes and attached the loop. It uses that newer Iron Heart.

Pretty easy.

Only problem is get the he depower line thru a tiny hole to attach the pull handle for the depower line...

hello guys :D
i m really happy with my handle to block the bar, i changed some stuff for a version .2 and added a hole to run the fifth line inside and that s helping by the same way to keep the handle straight so it s very easy to catch.
it does work very well with the flysurfer airstyle bar.i m fully free to use it when i want and to release it when i want as well.absolutely no risk to block the bar by accident. a full comfort for the no hand airstyle tricks. :thumb: :bye:

for the ones who are interested with here is the video of the first version.
i can send by mail a file .SLT ready to print of the second version which is just perfect by my opinion :heartface:
