Re: NZ GST

Switch, I'm thinking that the move of making the customer pay for local taxes may be a nail in your coffin. Less than a year ago I purchased an Element 6 for NZD$1058. Cost today (with the 40% fake sale) is NZD$986.03, add in the import duty $256.65 and the price is considerably higher, with the add...

Re: Bar availability?

I email the customer support when they show out of stock. They've always been able to ship form another warehouse within a week to me in NZ.

Re: Is controller 4 in development?

Surely there is somewhere to adjust / trim your lines ? I assume there is leader line coming off the bar. Can't you tie figure-8 knots in the leader to adjust? Hopefully, someone from Switch will step in and clarify. Surely there is somewhere to adjust / trim your lines ? Nope. the leader lines are...

Re: Is controller 4 in development?

I do find it funny that pretty much everything that was asked for, including the pvc sleeve, has been delivered. Yet people are still complaining. Proof that you can only please some of the people all of the time. In terms of price. Yes it is more expensive that the Controller 3, but with the discou...
