Hey Guys

Just picked up a 2008 or 2009 F-One Bandit 11 meter.

The kite is in fantastic condition and flies really well.

But the idea of not being able to cut away with a quick release chicken loop gives me pause. So I am considering upgrading the chicken loop or the entire bar and lines.

Can I ask if anyone has as anyone done so?

And if so can I ask what bar and lines you upgraded too please?

Be careful as I believe the original bandit and bandit dos fly on uneven line lenghts meaning you would no be able to simply swap out the lines.........

Just buy a 2018 linx complete bar and lines set, that has the new push away relase and swivel, covers B3-B12...!

Or even better, drop into your local store and they can get you sorted. The front-rear length distance can easily be accounted for with 2 extensions. Most other brand 4 line bars will work with this kite. I would avoid any pre 2018 F-One bar as they didn't have a single front line flagging system.
