Which bars work for Flexifoil kites?

Postby GrodanBoll » Sun Jul 22, 2018 5:18 pm

I have a Flexifoil Ion and a Flexifoil Proton kite. I think they are from 2012. I don't like their bar though since I think that one could wish more from the safety system.

I tried to fly the Ion kite with a best bar from 2013, but the turning speed was not good with this bar. Perhaps was the lines not very well trimmed... Anyway, does anyone know if the Flexifoil kites can be flewn with any 4-lines bar? Or perhaps can someone here recommend a bar which works well with these rather old Flexifoil kites?

I think the 2013 best bar had a high-Y split, didn't it? I can't remember which year they changed them to the V. The Y would slow down turning a bit and remove some feel out of the kite (at least in my experience with these bars)

I would think any bar with a V would work fine
