Re: Problems with Nitro 6 16 m.

Could this be again not checking the settings under the bar floats???

There are a number of knots under the floats and Switch tends to ship with the least powerful knots settings - loosest/longest.

Did you check those?

Re: WHAT WOULD YOU LIKE TO SEE FROM SWITCH IN THE FUTURE

I use my 16m Nitro4 and a 145cm TT when a friend about the same weight (160#) uses his 17m Edge with a foilboard. At 8-10 mph to 14-15 mph.

Re: Nitro 4 16m2 on 5 lines

You should be able to just make a line with a few attachment points on the end, running out from the pump attachment loop Then try the different attachment points. Usually you want the 5th line a little slack. Check it on the beach.

Nitro4 16m with 20m lines?

Anyone use 20m lines on their Nitro 16m?

My local beach has deteriorated so much that it would be very helpful to use 20m lines instead of the 23m (Switch bar3).

Just curious if anyone uses that size and the kite stays responsive and without getting pinched?!

Maybe Bill has comments.

Thanks

Re: Nitro 14M V5 review

As jms stated too depowered. Did you check attachments under bar floats? A few locals bought switch after seeing me using for awhile. A couple had your problems until I pointed out the attachment under the floats - they were shipped on depowered settings. Problems went away after adjusting to equal ...

Re: Element 5m wind range comments???

Thanks for the helpful responses.

Going for the N7m to get reasonable overlap with my N9m - and hopefully still get to about 40mph.

Here in Southern Cal the range can be low 20s to 40 plus during clearings.

I can't imagine kiting in 50mph plus gusts!!!!!
