The Compstick is a solid bar. With it's below the bar depower, active stopper and new "Diamond Bar Grip" this is an amazing bar.

The clean and uncluttered four- line configuration is easy and speedy to rig. With features like the Surefire Spinner swivel, Push Away Center Safety System, Auto Indexing Chicken loop and Active Stopper Ball it’s the preferred choice for riders constantly pushing the limits!
Ergonomic Trim Line Center Hole
Designed with a subtle “volcano” shape that prevents trim line chafe by slightly spreading your fingers while riding one-handed. The smooth metal feels good in your hand and provides “no look” feedback on your grab.
"Full Throttle" Diamond Bar Grip
Adapted from Motocross, the grip pattern features tiny diamonds and a grid of ridge lines. The EVA foam is slightly softer than last year but still provides a solid direct connection to your kite.
Push Away Center Safety System (CSS)
Builtofsolidstainlesssteel,itsbothbomberandfoolproof.Withaproventrackrecord,itfeatures push away release and easy reload. The CSS bungee line ends in a high visibility red finger loop with a stainless steel connector ring for your safety leash hook.
Auto Indexing Chicken Loop
Designedtoautomaticallyself-alignwhenunhooked,theChickenLoopisalwaysreadyforaction. It comes standard in size “medium” but can be interchanged. The Donkey Dik keeps your Chicken Loop attached to your spreader bar, and is easily removable with a simple Velcro attachment.
Super strong Spectra 800lb center lines and 500lb steering lines are standard. Red pigtails on the left, white on the right.
A beefy, silky smooth swivel helps your center lines untwist after spinning tricks and kite loops. Its offset arms also act as a clutch to prevent the bar from flying too far away when you fire your safety system.
Active Stopper Ball
When the wind is steady and you want to cruise, just set the stopper ball to take the bar load. To release, simply slide it up and out of the way.
Oh Shit Safety Handles
The name says it all. These integrated webbing loops on the end of each leader line give you a redun- dant backup plan when you need it.
Nylon Safety Leash
Each bar includes a 4’ Safety Leash made of strong tubular nylon webbing to keep you connected to your kite if you ever have to deploy CSS. It comes with built in stainless steel connector hooks and a push away secondary safety release system.
A simple Velcro flap on the top of the Oh Shit Safety Handles gives you a place to lock off your line ends when you finish wrapping up your bar.
New Graphics Package
The Pro black/white layout follows industry standards with red leader lines, red pigtails and red safety loops all on the left. Helping make the rigging fool-proof. The two Slingshot logos are laid out so when you can read ‘em, you know you are holding the bar correctly.
