i've been using naish ar5 and arx kites for some time and recently purchased a wipika airblaster. i have to say i prefer the way in which the naish kites are de-powered, and i'm looking at converting the wipika bar so that i can adjust the airblaster's power in the same manner as the naish kites. has anyone done this before ? if so, how did it work and is there anything i should watch out for when converting.

thanks

converting it shouldn't be a problem.
make sure you keep the same total line lenght as the original setup.
the Wipika setup is good for a larger depower range, so I would try it first and used it sometimes before you convert it, maybe you prefer it.

that's a tough question.
I ride on ARX kites so therfore I'm more used to the Naish adjuster.
What I don't like is that if depowered and I want more power it is not so easy as the Wipika to to release it. And it is not as easy to grab it than the Wipika.
The Wipika provides more lenght therefore more depower.
Just use what you prefer more. The Naish is ok, but there are better ones out there.
Have a closer look at the adjuster from Airush. You can pull for depower and release downwards, the Naish release has to be pulled upwards.

Greetings
Toby
