The bloody Vegas is built like a German tank, reinforced to buggery, the VX was no where near the same spec, but it is also so much lighter, and really is it all necessary? Maybe freestyle crew would say yes as they would crash their kites more pushing the boundaries. Also their entity straps, and pads, bloody comfortable and adjustable but my god takes a while to work me out.
I fly a 10m VX this year and have also put the NTT straps on my board and love them. Only problem I have is that the metal ntt badge on the side of the strap is rusting. Doesn't look like the 2013 straps have them, so sounds like an improvement. I'm not totally happy with my airush bar, been looking at other bars to replace it. North bar looks very slick, but I agree with Faxie, that the plastic bits on the end will probably be the weak spot.
Ok, so on the new bar.
Dont like that white colour is on the right. I think White and red should be on the left and black and grey on the right.
Wonder if that stopper is actually going to stop the bar from sliding. My Airush stopper looks the same and does not hold the bar pressure which is the reason I'm looking at other bar at the moment.
Shame that they dont have the microloop anymore either.
