Re: Most expensive bar ever?!

Dick, it appears that even though I blocked you I can still see your posts so I may as well reply. Where have I said, at any point that anything other than North is shit? In my original post I was simply talking about harder wearing, longer lasting gear and the effect that will have on the amount of...

Re: Most expensive bar ever?!

Seems like the Cabrinha bar that was originally mentioned may be being recalled!

Probably wasn't used to the power of the Best kite coming from an RPM.......... :shock:

Re: Most expensive bar ever?!

WOW! A 70+ man making Mum & Dad/girlfriend quips! Boasting about kites? I simply said I went through them quickly up until a couple of years ago.

You're condescending and irrelevant, I am truly glad that I don't kite at Newgale that often. Now I know the the foe button is for. Later.

Grahame. Thanks for the offer of the demo, the suggestion was also with tongue firmly in cheek.

Re: Most expensive bar ever?!

Really, what started out as a decent discussion about bar prices descended into you calling kites gay within a few posts.

Re: Most expensive bar ever?!

I almost always changed my kites and bar every year but I'm still on 2012 kites and they don't need changing, Probably because you're still being spoon-fed by your mum and dad. How about this then. Richard, if by chicken rope you mean grey depower on the North bar I have never seen one wear out in ...

Re: Most expensive bar ever?!

Paul. I'm surprised that a sharp piece of plastic would chew through a depower rope in a couple of minutes, bad luck I suppose. I'm not sure many kite companies would swap out a bar for that but who knows. I flew a couple of Blade kites the other day, lovely fun kite it was and a top notch bar to bo...

Re: Most expensive bar ever?!

Richard. There are plenty of other kites supplied by local dealers that I could have gone for so you're wrong about my decision to buy North kites. I don't believe I said that the kites are the best on the market but they are up there. Selling my soul? A little bit dramatic don't you think? I was si...

Re: Most expensive bar ever?!

Richard, if by chicken rope you mean grey depower on the North bar I have never seen one wear out in anything like six weeks, but they were prone to wear over time, something that has been addressed with the 2013 bar by separating the depower line and the fifth. A "piece of poo" kite, I suspect that...

What a surprise.
Not me fatboy, that was someone else, I just reported what I'd heard through the trade, I've no idea what, if anything, has gone wrong with those expensive bars..
GRF credibility factor 0.

Re: Most expensive bar ever?!

Well you can only speak as you find I say. My bar looks pretty mint for 1 year old I think you'll agree. A lot of my friends ride North and not one of them has had an issue with the 2013 bar or lines. In fact I've never had an issue with a North bar in 5 years of owning one unless you count a slight...
