The race bar is a 4:1 depower, where the standard bar is 2:1 The racebar looks to have a much longer depower than the 5 inch on the standard bar. I ordered the race bar but they sent me a standard bar for now, while the racebar is back ordered.

Hi hawaiis, when you get your racebar in, could we get some detailed pics and measurements from you? That would be a great help! :thumb:
Thx dude :cool2:

It looks longer but the actual depower is 1/2 the total length to the top of the cascade.

Sure, I will definitely do that,

There is a red plastic ball midway on one of the 25M front line, I wonder what it is for? there is no manual or instructions on the standard bar.

Wen you pull your QR it prevents tne bar to slide all the way up, now ypu can still reach it to assemble the whole thing:-) :thumb:

The race bar finally came today, it has a total depower travel of 7 inches, only a couple inches longer than the standard bar.
it did not have the red ball in the middle of one of the front lines.
The ends of the rear flying lines are all all loops. I have to attach pig tails so they can attach to the kite.
today's wind was from 3-17MPH, it came in really handy and very smooth. I only have trouble when I pull the depower all the way in and it get stuck. Very hard to release. So I will remember to leave a small section of rope for easier release.

Sounds good,
I attached a line through the loop of the depower pull, and it hangs over my bar, added a few knots and works perfect, but it is a bit heavy to pull.
So if you could lay out your bar and depowersystem flat on the floor, And make some sharp pictures of it, maybe add some distance measurements etc, then I could try to change mine by adding a pulley etc..
Thx
