I am thrilled with the performance of the 4 line bar. The kite has never spun. It always lands perfect. Never tried the safety on the water, but I can guess by the way it self lands on the beach, that nothing bad would happen on the water and relaunch is likely easier than having a kite go on its back using 5 lines, which we know can be a nightmare if the kite tumbles and wraps up the 5th line.
The bar travels up the front line as far as needed, then goes no further. No need for a stopper on the line.
I have tried leashes that pull both lines. I tested the EVO bar on the Rhino. It does not work. If you want that style safety, buy the EVO. It was designed for it.
Why the REV bar? Because I got my Rhino a long time ago and North did not have 4 line bars designed for the Rhino. The Rhino was designed using 5 lines. I think North is working on a 4 line bar better suited for it. Because I know how long it takes to build tens of thousands of kites and bars to meet world demand, I decided not to wait and bought a REV bar.
