High rising Bow

Spotted this up for sale, one of the highest bows I've seen in a while, especially for a 5.5m Rib

Do we like it ?

looks like a VSR? Apparently handling is a bit 'odd' until you get used to them.

Don't think that a vsr poly, the bow isn't swept away aft that much, is a strange one though

Found it — it's Chinese: Lingbo 5.5 (5.5m-v RIB-Lingbo).

Edit: beaten to it!
