I'm considering the purchase of a 2013 Cab bar (~$500) for use with my 2011 13M Xbow. My kite is still in great condition, I hate the bar.
I can get a 2012 bar for almost half the price.
Is the 2013 bar vastly different?
Thanks in advance..
What are the things that bug you about the 2011 bar? With that in mind, maybe one of us can contrast that with what's changed on the newer bars.
-ve: Looks like the primary QR is still significantly more difficult to restore especially in deep water
+ve: The line quality (waxed?) seems on-par with some of the best (was hoping someone would provide a review on their lines from actual usage).
My 2012 lines are significantly worn out and I take good care of them, don't leave them wet or salted, just waiting for a line break any day now. Actually the de-power rope broke under high winds. Session count at 60 or so. I think the quality is unacceptably low. Anybody else getting this? You decide.
