The ID Bar is the first bar i own, with which i have no problems concerning unequal stretched lines after some sessions on the water.
i also have a set of those q-power lines and they are not as good as those Flexi/Mutiny ones!!!
Also the Teufelberger ones stretch far more than these new Flexi/Mutiny lines.
Flexifoil says that there's a new technology used on those lines: "diamond technology
To me it seems that these lines are made off a higher grade Dyneema with a better new webbing and a teflon coating that really lasts.
From a friend of mine, who sells Mutiny Kites, Mutiny uses exactly the same lines on their second generation 5-line bars, i heard these lines are produced in the Netherlands...
'did some research on the internet: and found this:

This Dyneema Producer DSM, located in the Netherlands
, produces gloves partly made out off those diamond-technology-dyneema stuff. As far as i can imagine DSM Dyneema might earn the biggest part of their money by producing gloves and industrial stuff like that. Maybe they also produce those lines and if you read through the diamond technology
-PDF, on this website, you get to know the facts about this new amazing Dyneema fiber, which brings no stretch to your lines on the water, even for heavier guys who prefer to snap back and loop their kite on the water a little bit harder.
These lines give a more direct feel and more pop to your kite too! Just try to use a different bar with other lines on the same kite and you'll feel the big difference on the water.
