Has anyone out there flown a cab switchblade with a duotone trust bar? The wakestyle loop kit for the trust bar looks better for unhooking than what I have which is the 2015 cab overdrive bar. Eventually I'll be getting the new Evo(No pully's) but can't afford both atm. Just the bar for now

Cabrinha have knots on the steering lines at the kite and loops on the centre lines whereas Duotone is reversed. You should be able to make it work though by changing your pigtails or adding a knot on your centre pigtails on the bar and compensating by increasing the length of your back lines a bit.

My old North Trust bars have a high Y split on the centre lines. So if your Cab bar doesn't have a high Y split the Switchy might not fly like it should.

You are right Listery, I forgot Cab bars have a low V since about 2011 and Duotone use a high V.

Hey mate - i'm not fully across all the latest and greatest tech, but recall a buddy saying that some of the new clickbars eg Duotone, can convert between a high (y) and low v rig up somehow. No idea how fiddly it is to change between, but if you were going to still run the 2 sorts of kites, this might bridge it for you. cheers

Correct, the Click Bar allows you to set the Y point in multiple positions so it will work. Other brands I know of that offer a larger freestyle loop are Ozone and North.
