Re: C5X Control Bar

I hate adjustable pigtails. Such a clunky solution. You end up with a big knotty piece of junk on the end of your lines. Far better to have adjustable leaders with knots inside the floats. Easier to adjust because the knots are not under as much tension as flying line adjustable pigtails. Easier to...

Weight comparison between Element 6 and Element 7

Can switch produce a chart showing the weight differences between the two models?

Curious if the new canopy material adds or saves weight.

By the looks of it, I think you have to use adjustable pigtails, like C4X. I sent Switch a message asking if 4 pigtails are included with the C5X. Will post here when I g...

Re: C5X Control Bar

Releasing a new product on the communicated release date (November 10) would be a first for Switch.

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

Kent, I agree. Switch is chronically late on their 'teaser' release dates. The new Element was supposed to be released mid-October...where is it? This is the same track record as previous product releases. There is always a reason 'why', but there shouldn't be after the third product release. You'd ...
