Are the pointy ends to help point upwind better or stab your board and yourself - at the same time ?

thanks for putting these up, switch is really slow on their website i understand the manufacturing process taking a while but the website should be a couple of hours..., anyways a couple of questions

is the donkey dick still flimsy?

does the safety line below the bar have a bungee in it? is the hole in the QR bigger to accommodate the loops between the safety line and front like...the v1 has a really small hole

Donkey dick is firm, to me top notch also the QR is smaller.

Safety is connected to bungee
The hole is bigger yes

Hi Jespin, Sorry about that - the website change over should have gone a lot better. The old webserver was just not up to the task and our host had some problems upgrading our server... Any way, everything seems to be in hand now and the new website has always had plenty of pics of the new Controller2: http://switchkites.com/controller2.html As always, if you have any questions we are happy to help

I have the original bar and have limped along with a donkey dick I made to replace the Switch stock one that was pretty bad.
Is the replacement donkey dick going to be available from the controller parts section soon?

Videos of the bar in action would be helpful. Just a general rundown of it's features, etc.

Right, like what's the difference between the new and the old one. I need a new bar.
