Had a chance to use the Blade unibar today. Very impressed so far.
Things I liked...
* super comfortable grip and non-slip. Not much effort needed to grip bar.
* Bar feels really light in your hands.
* Very clean system. Everything is very easy to adjust/reset.
* no calluses on my hands :D.

Improvements..
Just one, I would like to see a raised section around the center hole like a couple other manufacters are starting to do.

The bar looks great. Definitely one that has a lot of the features that I'd be looking for which is exciting to see! Would love to know how quickly the bar length changes can be made. Any chance of see pictures/video of the process? Would be great to have only one bar. Thanks.

Sorry dude. Never owned a bar that did that before. Most of my bars over the years look like the first simple bar I bought in 2005. Oddly enough the only changeable bar I've seen had a rotating mechanism on the bar ends which seemed way too complicated.

In this case I was guessing that the leader lines attach to knots on either side of the bar end. Hopefully it's as simple as that without having to pull through leader lines, kite lines, the floats or anything else. Just was hoping for confirmation since I couldn't see it in pics.

Edit: thanks for the second post

Take care
