Hiya,
I have an ‘09 Rise 12 with a pretty old bar. Does anyone know if it is possible(i.e. safe) to use a 2011 Best RedLine bar with that kite?

Thanks!

A bar is a piece of tube with bits of string attached, When you look at it in these terms you realise that as long as the string is the right length and you have an operational safety systen ( Preferably to the front lines) and the right number of lines there isn’t much to say.

True…I guess my question was more about line lengths and stuff. Is there anything special about the rise on that front? I am pretty sure my best bar/lines are all the same length. Any caveats?

Depower on full power . Chicken loop against the bar . All lines equal at the kite end.  Add 3” pigtail to the rear lines ( can be adjusted for fine tune)
What is a pigtail?  A loop of strong string made with a knot in the end.
K.I.S.S.
That said when your bar wears out . Concider the OR products because the profilled bar is superb in you hands
