I use the CPR bar on any kite that I ride. The main reason is the handle pass leash attachment. You can hook your leash to the ball on the depower line and when you let go of the bar it pulls the full 6ft of depower line out and depowers off of the center two lines. This is much safer than any other handle pass leash on the market. You can also easily switch this over to the below bar flagging safety for sketchy launches or self landings.
The addition of a swivel was much needed on the CPR bar. To my surprise it worked most of the time although I do make sure that I get the sand out before I launch. When it gets stuck, it is a bit of a reach, but you can pull it towards you and untwist it.
REAL Pro Tip:When you connect the chicken loop, make sure that it clicks down twice. LF put some yellow paint on the chicken loop that will be showing if it is not connected properly. If you don't do this right the loop will pop off pretty easily.
