Imba: you got that right!
The bar is key for Airstyle ! Specially the Microloop!
That's why I ride North kites! Because of the bar! The kite is second choice...and sicne I hate trimming and techy stuff, I ride the North kites, since I simply attach the bar and have to move max. 1 knot and I can go ride.
Lucky me, I tried the Dyno as the only big kite from North and I found my kite!
If you want to be a good Airstyler, the ML is a must. Makes way more tricks possible!
Sure, some people will say it is not, but tell them to do my tricks...and that's why you don't see these tricks from others, they don't have the ML ...
And a personal question for Toby: Man, lets imagine that you just somehow "lost" you 19m Dyno kite & your bar now. What are you steps to get a new set of everything? Will u buy old North bar? New model without ML? Or what?
I would try all to get an older North bar (2012-2009) first. Or an older Core bar, they had a ML as well.
Then an 2011 Dyno.
Somehow I would get it all...so I don't need to think about an alternative!
But the Flysurfer do have a great lift and hangtime...then maybe get an older Iron Heart to have a hook, and somehow attach a small loop onto the bar.
Toby if I remember correctly uses 128/38 for his 95 kg weight.
