Anyone find that on there depower/power line gets caught in the cleat? I tried the bar for the first time, and at one point I could not get my line out of the cleat to depower. I think that line is to small and hard. Ocean Rodeo, uses similar system but the line is bigger and fatter, and has a bungee type line to it, and works very well. Can someone comment.

Maybe because everything is still new?

I almost never touch my depower, so don't know... :roll:

I adjust mine all the time. Hopefully that is the issue. It would be nice to hear from Switch.

Hi, I just received the new bar, I bought the 55cm one. But when I opened the box, I was immediatly surprised with the length of the bar. It is 61cm long but not 55 cm as precised. So 6-7 cm more long than a classic bar (controller 3 for example). Much too long for me, I will send it back.
Is the 46 cm longer too ? 50 cm ? Can I order it if I want a 50cm bar ?
Thanks

I was kinda surprised about the width too. Probably 55cm from line to line. My V2 is more like 50cm. However, it does work pretty good with my Legacy's. Not sure about the unhooking though.

Gonna order another bar anyway for my smaller kites.

Hello Guys.
You have to measure where the lines come out of the actual solid connection point of the bar .
Not the actual rubber molding . The rubber molding does no dictate the leverage point .
Please see attached where the bar with is measured from.

There are some really huge rubber bar ends on the market that add over 5 cm or more to each side of the bar .

Do no be fooled by the protective rubber molding for size.

Regards
Felix
