Re: Nano Review

Thanks for the review! The shape looks similar to the old 3 strut Elements. I've switched over to the newer Elements but perhaps my next kite will be a Nano. What do you think the best size is?

Re: Weight comparison between Element 6 and Element 7

The weight of impact on the wallet has definitely increased! Element 7 looks like a big jump in price even compared to the Nitro 7 :shock:

C3 Short Loop?

I'm seeing a lot of bars offering a shorter chicken loop for rope harnesses. Wondering if anyone has modified their C2/3 chicken loops or found a short replacement that works with it?

Element 6 Canopy Ripples Near Left Wingtip Normal?

I've been loving my new 9m and 12m elements, but have noticed something odd on the 9m Element and finally got a buddy to snap a photo. It's slightly blurry, but you can see the ripples that I'm talking about near the left wingtip- they kind of follow along the switch logo arrow.

Re: Helium 3 7sqm frontstall?

Perhaps you could try sliding your stopper a bit closer so when you let go of the bar it can't sheet out quite as far?

Re: 12M Element V6 Video Review

Great job! Love the demo of the beach launch, I've always wondered how that works.

Only feedback is the song that comes in around the 4 minute mark is too loud compared to your narration, and it's hard to hear what you're saying over the music.

Elements were almost .5m bigger than the number on the kite. Maybe that's the difference you felt. Helium compensates in the lowend with higher AR and lower weight probably.
Interesting! Are the new E6's also bigger than their stated size?

Re: Switch Element V6

I finally got a chance to fly my 9m E6 yesterday, and just wanted to say: I love it! Our local spot (Lake Champlain) is very high in the spring, and most of the launches are underwater. I had to self launch using an anchor and despite the launch area being full of sticks and debris, the bridal didn'...

Re: Nitro 6 Reviews !

I agree that my issues with the Nitro are largely user error. I will say that my primary kite spot is Lake Champlain, VT, and it is extremely gusty. I've been kiting for 4+ years and am used to dealing with squirley winds. I've mainly been flying Elements this whole time, so perhaps this is a differ...
