I have had one incident with the kite looping uncontrollably that I punched out from, but I did not notice damamge after this (and it is quite noticable damage, both when kiting and setting up). I first noticed the damage a few sessions ago and it appeared to get worse over the last couple of sessions.
My main question now is do I need to replace those lines, and if so what is the best/cheapest option? Do Ozone lines work on the Naish bar?
I will certainly try the wax trick on the existing lines if I keep them, or on the new lines.
I'll check a little further up.
I think it is a little hard to say since I do not know the lines. I cannot imagine you having to change the lines after 2 weeks. That is unheard of. If a line snaps after that short time I would assume that is something you can talk to the shop about..I dunno I never had that problem....that said, it is a little hard to generalize that just from the pic.
I would say no no need to change, but then again, it is a little easier to know when you see the lines in person.
I know you said the lines are thinner than the 2012 bar. Is this maybe the ride bar? I am not 100% but that might have thinner lines. I can check on mine. i used my ride bar before I got the parks.
