at the side you have 8cm for depower adjustment. Other systems may have more, but therefore your depower lenght is quiet long.
My experience is, that you don't need an adjuster, since you want power. And if you are overpowered you take a smaller kite.
It is not a beginner bar, but guys who rotate want power.

On the depower trimming, it does have the novel adjustment on the ends of the bar. It has a long chicken loop stroke to help manage through gusts. The bar helps guys that do a lot of spinning moves to do just that and still have a safety leash to their kite. So, you can have a blast and turn great moves and still protect your kite, others and your access. It is a good concept.

Hi Royce,
Any more info on the Rotobar?
I think all I need to have a safe spinning leash system to hook in/out of is this spinning bar and depower and fixed loops that have QR like the X2.
Only problem is you can't get any of this stuff in Italy, any ideas?
Btw, what's the hook like to hook back into? Doesn't it turn upwards when you try to hook back in sometimes?

Thanks.
Jo

Here's a picture of the slingshot bar depower I use on my SS bar:

In terms of spinning, if the shackle is reversed so it is static-attached to the spreader bar and the loop is shackled-in, you can run your leash to the shackle and attach it to the shackle-door ABOVE the joint, so the leash and bar can spin as one device, and if you release the shackle, the leash will still be attached to the shackle, holding the kite.

I'm going to do this to my bar, as well. The other bar looks real nice, though. Just another option for those that have some components and don't want to spend the whole $ on a new bar setup.
