The word I have so far is that narrower bars are for smaller more responsive
kites and wider bars are for bigger kites that may need longer pulls to make
them respond.

Does anybody think there's also a correlation with sailor shoulder width?

If you've got wider shoulders than the bar you are using it does feel
strange if you've been used to flying with a longer bar, but you do get used
to it, my favourite is a 22" Ken Winner Longhorn carbon fibre bar, cya and
