I've seen North 2013 product catalogue, not the bar in real life. Will be interesting to see how the changes are accepted, can't remember if the dangly trim rope has been fixed, looked like the new stuff was all about the bar, chicken loop and trim system looks the same as last year from memory.
I will refresh yer memory..
New adjustments for rear lines, new width adjustment, new floats, new grip pattern n color, new centerline eye then thre is the(.trimsystem..).new cleat, new stopper ball, new centerline, new safety line routing. No more centerline Velcro on stopper to eat line, no more safety line catching in cleat,no more twisting of depowered end around rigging.....ohhh it is just wonderful.... I think sept release date but it could be a little later..
