Love my 5m Trigger (2011). For me, the best 5m for my kind of riding. I was glad to hear the 2012 5m is the only kite in the lineup that has the same exact shape.

The 12m is a sweet size as well.
That advanced wave bridle setting really lets it drift 8)

Yes Trigger 5 is absolutely my great love in this range (since 2010).
One pic of the session last Friday (Trigger 5) it was a great Loopsession and some higher jumps were also possible. The forecast was really great but it was not as good as we thought. :cry:
only 25-40 Knts.

Can I use my North Bar (4 lines) from 2011 with the Trigger 12m?

I'm probably buying a Trigger, and it would be great to be able to use my almost new bar with the kite.

Blade uses standard bar setup - all lines same length when fully powered (trim strap + powered bar).
I'm not sure what is the situation with North.

Line length can always be adjusted to match.

However, I heard people had issues with their kites due to different size Y on the front lines (Y higher up or lower down).

Not sure if blade trigger is sensitive at this.
How far up starts the Y on the blade bar?

The front lines split 3-4 meters from the bar.

Thanks, Oldnbroken.

It's the same on the North bar.
However, the north bar has a mini-5th line that goes to the Y (so not a single-front line safety like the blade bar).

Any idea if this affects security , or would the trigger depower sufficiently with the mini-5th?

It´s not a good idea to use a northbar on a bladekite.
JN and North normaly uses a very high Y to stable LE, and also the Safety should work with one frontline or a 5th line.
If your Y is low on your Northbar and you can put a 5th-line on it, it should work.
Blade Trigger works great with a very low (direct above adjuster) to a mid Y 4-5m without problems, a little higher is no problem but not perfect anymore. But safety has to work!!! Test it at low wind with a friend.

my north bar has the Y at 4 m, and has 24 m lines.
From what you say, it should work with regards to flying.
Will, however, need to test if the Trigger flags out with a mini-fifth...

Someone who is flying triggers has any experience with that?
