Bar &lines question

Postby Oldish » 10 Sep 2018, 12:40

Hi all total noob here , I’ve just acquired a slingshot turbo 2 kite it’s has a problem with the bar can I use a different bar setup to the original which is a pulley type ? It’s a 2007 kite ie would it work with a F-one bar perhaps
Thanks in advance ..

It can work, kind of....but that is a very old kite and tbh they weren’t that good when they were new!!
We quickly got rid of ours back in the day, they were extremely slow, hence the pulleys on the bar to try to quicken it up....it didn’t.
It’s 11years old so I wouldn’t spend too much £ on it either way.
