First lets start with the things that are right with the bar and should not be changed.
- Above bar depower.
All of depower available, not just half as with strap oriented depower systems.
Knots for adjusting back lines (under floats).
Under the bar center line untwisting.
One piece bar construction.
One bar that converts easily to either 45 or 55cm.
Flying lines attach to knots instead of through larks heads, making it easier to change linesets.
Velcro for attaching depower so it's not swinging in your face.
- Oh shit handles for back lines. Very handy if being submarined by a kite downed in the surf or having to self land in high wind conditions.
Round out the bottom of the slideable stopper (like the top of it) so its a little friendlier to the hand when shoving it back up.
A least an option for softer bar material. I've had to start using gloves for the first time in 10 years of kiting to give my hands a break from the super sticky and unforgiving bar material.
Pre-impregnate the chicken line with parafin to extend it's life.
