Hi there,

From yesterday I have joined the OR crew with a pair of Cypher kites (10m & 7m)! 
I would like some advice from all of you on whether I will have any problems flying my cypher kites with the flexifoil hadlow id bar. Tech specs of the bar follow
size: 48 cm
4 line, 22m
Mini 5th safety line setup

Thanks in advance for your advice/suggestions.

No one?!!

Anyway, let me share with you my experience. I contacted the local store here (kiteclub.gr), which has very helpful staff (Angel) and with excellent service, to borrow me an OR bar to test my new kite(s). So, I went to the beach and flew the 10m Cypher with the OR bar and then with the flexifoil bar. With the OR bar the kite was amazing, really smooth, direct response and fast turning. When I switched to the flexifoil bar, I had some issues: a) the mini-fifth line was not as long as the OR, and hence the kite would not depower 100% and b) there was not enough line slack at the rear lines – causing the kite to have some weird back stalling attitude. Conclusion comes with me getting a new OR fusion bar today.
