Slingshot Compstick Sentinel 2018
Slingshot bar for all Slingshot kites with depower above the bar
The 2018 Slingshot Compstick Sentinel has the depowersystem above the bar, so you don't have anything bouncing around the chickenloop. We recommend this system although some people prefer the Slingshot Compstick Guardian (depower underneath the bar).
The Compstick bar is equipped with a good safety system which has an easy push-away quick release system. As soon as you activate your QR system the kite is attached to only a single power line which ensures a complete depower. Underneath the bar, there is a swivel which untangles the power lines after a backloop or kiteloop. The advantage is that you can turn it back by hand, even if there is a bit of sand and salt in between! The swivel above the bar is a thing of the past with the 2018 Sentinel bar.
The Slingshot Compstick Sentinel 2017 bar is available in three different sizes: a 43cm (17") bar with 20m lines, a 50cm (20") bar with 20m lines + 3m extensions (new for 2018) and a 58cm (23") bar with 27m lines. We recommend the 17" bar on kites of 9m and smaller, the 20" bar on kites between 8m and 13m and the 23" bar on 14m and bigger.
