This is a good point and I don't think it was previously mentioned - but is extremely important to bring up. 1 / 2 line flagging is a kite-design attribute and something you should know before you pair a 4-line bar to a 4-line kite.
i.e. a kite designed to flag on it's back to 2-front lines run on a 1-line flagging bar may pinwheel on you, and vice versa you may be dealing with a kite that's not fulling depowering for you with safety punched
VERY GOOD POINT Aloha!!!
I know that these kites brands use C-bars designed flag onto the front two lines only (aka mini 5th)...
Airush 2012 (their 2013 bar is now a single line safety).
Do NOT use these bars with kites that are NOT engineered to flag onto the front two lines or as Aloha stated, you may NOT be fully depowered after punching out!!!
Note: So far I've found no issues with the opposite - using a kite that's engineered to flag-out onto the front two lines combined with a C-bar that uses a single-line safety system.
