it is still more than on an AB if you fly the AB with bridles.
But the X2 has less pressure on the bar then the ARX.
BTW I prefer to have more pressure on the bar, since this way I always know, where the kite is. I experienced with bridles, that since it is so loose, I didn't know where the kite is, which caused more droppings.

yep, it's also a matter of taste. Most AB-kiters take the bridle of because of too little barpressure, because then they don't know where the kite is without looking at it.. So not too much and not too little :wink:

And yes it's also a matter of taste.
Just got an email from North that Ken Winner uses 45cm bar on all his Toro's, but advices 52 to the average customer..

Imagine 45cm bar on a Toro16.......
I find 65cm bar + 25m lines(+4m leaderlines) great on as wel an AB11.8 2002 as on a Rhino16. 50cm bar on both kites suck(excusez le mot) bigtime especially at low winds(8-11 knots).

well ...
i suppose ken winner rides all hist toros well powered up :wink:

but you're right .. i feel comfortable with everything smaller than 60cm - if the kite needs a longer bar, i wouldn't like it that much any more ... (once had a flysurfer 90cm bar)

Hey Murdoc,

maybe it was meant to be this way?
Now with your airush you can improve much faster!
