Nobody sells a kite complete anymore! Do the manufactures charge extra for complete kites now? Bar hoarder's.

They stay with their owners and then when they die they go to kite-bar heaven (or to live on a farm - depending which option you prefer).

Kites are cheaper without a bar and slingshot has an excellent selection of cheap spare parts - so no need to keep buying new ones.

Yes dude - when you buy a new kite you have an option to buy just the kite - or buy the kite with a bar. Bars are now selling for $500 plus - so people hang on to them when they upgrade their kites.

A lot of the newer bars have a width adjustment, so you can use one bar with 3 or 4 kites.

Should probably stock up on bars. The $300 POS with strings attached is now a $550 POS, with inflation on the horizon we’ll see $900 bars by the time today’s bars mature!
