Anyone know why Slingy stopped making the Talon for the Guardian bar?

I have been informed that the Talon is not universal and currently not available for the guardian bar. Must be something new coming .

I found when using the talon with a guardian is was hard to pull the depower.
I actually released the kite last may by the white salmon while yanking on the depower line. It actually happen two different time.
Went to the sentinel above bar depower and no more issues.
I wonder if slingshot and other users found the same thing.

go with the small chicken loop and remove the Donkey dick.
it slides just as easily and imo is a better solution than the talon.
