Just bought one of these (the 47cm one) but it looks really big for a 47 bar. It is 47cm between back lines where they leave the bar but the actual bar is about 52cm. Can anybody measure their bar and confirm that the size is measured between rear lines as I've nothing to compare it too where I am (what to make sure it's the correct one before I use it).
Thanks.
Tim.

its worked out on distance between the lines rather than actual bar length.

What size kites are you planning on using it with?

Thanks cowboy. It's for my girlfriend who will only use it with 5,7 and 9. I prefer a bigger bar but she finds it a bit bulky. Wondering how she will find this new one as it's physically as big as my bar just won't steer as quick.

she shouldnt have a problem steering those size kites. The 52cm made the 8m TS I had extremely quick.
