What we think: The Compstick is a great bar. It is simple and easy to use. If you have shorter arms and hate those above the bar depower systems, then this is the bar for you. The grip on this bar is really good so make sure you build up those calyces. Slingshot’s lines have always been known for their strength! The release and safety system are one of the best out there. The big swivel above the bar works great as long as you keep it clear of salt and sand. This bar can be used with pretty much any bridled 4 line kite.
2015 Compstick Bar/Lines W/ GUARDIAN SAFETY
Today’s riders need to be at the center of control. Building on 4 consecutive World Championships, the new Compstick with Flight Control and our patented Rider Control Center, is the safest, most comprehensive and intuitive control system available on the market today. We focused on the performance of three individual zones which work together to provide a world class rider-centric control system.
This new approach takes into account 3 specific areas, 1. Flight Control – Above the Bar, 2. Compstick – At the Bar, 3. Rider Control Center – Below the Bar. All three critical areas have been optimized to work in balanced harmony. As a complete system, the 2014 Compstick blends the critical elements of safety, kite control, de-power, and convenience into a rider experience that is tested, trusted, simple, smooth, and intuitive.
