It seems I'm constantly replacing worn out bits on my bar / lines (best red line 2011) so I want to replace it with one that is going to give me less grief. I've always loved best kites since the Waroo days but always been dissapointed with the bars / lines so am not very tempted to part with £320 for their latest bar just to have the same problems. I'm therfore looking for recommendations for a decent 4 line bar with plenty of bar range to be used with Kahoonas. Anybody got any suggestions? I briefly tried using Slingshot bars which look simple and strong with quality lines but found the depower cleat under the bar next to impossible to pull (which to me seems a major flaw).
Thanks !

Check out the 2013 Airush smart bar - does 4 differrent lengths, has 500KG front lines and plastic coated depower. I did a whole year one one bar last year with nothing needing replaced and it still looked great and is being used by the kid who bought it off me.

Everyone who see/touches it comments on how good it is.

Thanks John, that looks like a nice bar, definitely going on my short list.
