Can anyone tell me what other bar(and lines) matches to Octane 2010?
It depends on which size Octane you have. Slingshot recommended the following...
43cm (17") bar on the 9m and smaller kites.
51cm (20") bar on the 11m and 13m.
59cm (23") bar for the 15m.
The lines were 23m.
I had the 11m Octane and I used it originally with the Slingshot Comp Stick bar and then I switched to Naish's 2012 Universal bar which is adjustable to 51cm. The Naish bar came with 20m lines and then I switched to 24m for a little more low-end performance.
Note: Both the Slingshot and the Naish bars utilize a single-line safety. The Octane will not flag out safely on a two-line system (i.e. North Quad or Cab Quicklink IDS), so stay away from these. Most of the kite companies are now using a single-line system (including the 2014 Cab bar), so you have plenty of options. Just make sure to keep it identical or very close to the Slingshot Comp Stick dimensions and you should be good to go. A 1cm variance won't be noticeable (50 vs 51), so don't get hung up on that.
