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
