Re: WTF Switch

Speaking strictly from a business owner's perspective, I don't think they are marketing to those of us who are loyal customers. It's not necessarily right but I suspect a way to try & lure in new customers. I also suspect that import taxes in some places are eating their net profit in the ass. They ...

Re: Helium 3

The fluttering went away when I pulled the Bar down more than half of the way! Not by Fingertipp pressure. Helium 7sqm in 23 knots. I think it feels like wether an off or on mode. I'm not happy with the kite. Every kite - regardless of size or style has its happy place with sheeting the bar dependi...

Re: Nitro 7?

Thanks Felix for your response. Great to hear the stoke is still there! BTW I never put down the kite but I did have reasons for questions based on N5 & N4 experience. I really appreciate the Switch business model but primarily the customer service & interactive feedback. Thanks Jacob for your revie...

Re: Nitro 7?

Will only be used in snow so bridal wraps shouldn't be as big of a deal as on water. Sadly, what Switch started out to be seems to be fading or diminishing. Used to get a lot of feedback from Felix & of course Bill(I know he's no longer there) - especially when a new kite launched. Seems there's an ...

Re: Nitro 7?

Older version of Nitro's seemed to perform well at upper end of their ranges but I'll be really curious to know how this kite performs in the bottom 1/3rd of its range - especially the 14M. Could be time to replace the FS Boost2?

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

I would like a high aspect, high performance, go fast, big boosting kite. Presumably that would be a new Nitro. I am very happy with my Elements (4 and 5) and my Heliums. I feel that when blasting upwind on my foil I reach terminal velocity and can't go any faster. My kite mate has the same gear bu...

Re: Helium to E5 Comparison

I agree that low end is really similar to E5 with maybe 10% more comfortable range on the top end than E5 had....riding a surfboard. Don't foil yet so don't know how the 2 compare there but this kite stays in the air much easier than E5 did so I'd assume a better foiling weapon too.
