Slingshot is upping the ante by adding a different setup to its arsenal than the previous model. The Slingshot Sports Compstick Sentinel Control Bar is an above-the-bar system that moves the depower strap from the waist-level position of the below-the-bar setup to the arms-reach location that some riders prefer.
The Sentinel uses the same control bar as the 2016 Guardian, but comes with a completely reworked chicken loop and safety release system and a molded below the bar Spin-to-Win mechanism that allows riders to untwist center-lines with ease.
The Compstick is offered in the universal 20” bar with 23 meter lines, which can be used with any kite size in the lineup. For more specialized riders, Slingshot also offers a 17” bar with 20 meter lines for small kites and a 23” bar with 27 meter lines for large kite. Slingshot’s internal-bungee kite leash has also been changed up with a shorter overall length and sturdier molded-metal carabiner clips for added strength.
