RRD Bar for obsession

Postby BillyGoatGruff » Wed Jul 17, 2013 10:21 pm

I have a 2011 RRD bar (think this was the V3 bar) my 2012 obsession flys perfectly on this. Does the 2013 obsession fly fine on this bar? Is there a difference between the V3 and the V4/V5 bars, looks like they just got rid of the "oh shit" handles on the V4/V5 bar and changed the colour a bit..

Just did abit of research and seems

V3 (2011)/V4 (2012) are identical bars

V5 (2013) has a swivel and a pulley at the top. Slightly improved but essentially the same bar as V3/V4

So anyone flying the 2013 obsession on the V3 bar ???

thanks

It should work fine. I've flown it on an older RRD bar. As you stated, there are some minor differences in the V5 bar (washers above black and red balls where the safety connects that makes it easier to unspin center lines, etc), but line lengths and connections are all the same so it will work fine.

Oh yea? What are you, some kind of expert or something? :wink:
