Not sure I like the nobs on the ball for the trim adjustment - they'll hurt like a bastard in cold weather...

The rest of it looks good though! Especially like the swivel... could be good on the Flysurfers too!

On the old Bar, you had to remove one Screw.
Looks like for the the new bar it will be the same.

Interested to see how the safety works in 5 line mode.
Not entirely sure but I'm guessing stopper mounted somewhere above the swivel?

With the 30day money back guarantee, I smell a combat in the future, just have to wait for winter to ens so I can actually ride it within the 30 day window.

Do you know when replacement donkey dicks will be available?
I would like to get my old Switch bar back in shape and updated with some redesigned parts.

Hi oldnbroken, as far as l now there will come a set, to upgrade your V1 bar into a V2.
Just give it a couple of weeks, till the website is running 100%

Cheers dude :cool2:
