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

I'm still asking for a new batter deigned bar but as for kite construction I have to agree with switch. There is a fine balance between performance,construction,design, and material selection. Just because the other companies do it in a different way doesn't mean it's the only right way. I have alwa...

Re: Helium 15 lightwind

Agreed, I finally put about 20 sessions on the helium15.5, and was about to asks for the same thing helium in all sizes. The kite loops well for a bigkite I actually prefer looping this to my 12m nitro5. Whenever I step down from the helium 15.5 to the 12m nitro5 I feel like I have to pay way more a...

Re: Mj2 help

Were you using boots with the other boards also? Boots rob you of a couple knots of wind.

Re: Nitro v5 14m opinions

Bill C. Yes I was talking 15.5 and yes my 230lb friend was on the same size. I never thought I would go anything larger then 12m but the 15.5 is just so easy to fly in light winds also for a big kite it loops nicely and the power delivery is quite smooth. I actually prefer looping the helium then my...

Re: Nitro v5 14m opinions

I had the same reservations on the helium 15.5 also. The up wind difference is minimal. The helium want to fly high in the window. You plain out wa faster then using the nitro, and don't have to go as fast to go up wind. It feels like ur going slow but is still goes up wind, where as the nitro you h...

Re: Kite Leash shorty option.

I thought I would like a longer leash also but after some use I ended up going back to a regular sized one. I agree with the others if you don't unhook handle pass that much the longer leash actually gets in the way. It seems to want to wrap around my knee not a good thing if you wipe.

Re: Which non-switch bars for Elements ?

Best Bars are pretty good. I like how simple they are there is very sleek and efficient. Liquid force would be my second, not as clean as best bar but what it has it works well. The most important part is find a bar you like and tweek it till it's perfect for you. If you look at the older riders on ...

Re: Helium 15.5 or Nitro 14?

That might actually be true. I have a 12m nitroV and the 15.5m helium. I know 12m is not 14, but the helium only improved upon the 12m nitro's low end by only a couple of knots. The real difference is getting the kites in the air. To launch a nitro in light wind you almost have to throw the kite in ...

Re: Controller 3 Swivel

Switch kites r great, Bar not so much. Yes, using another brand bar is fine. I've flown on best, slingshot, cab, and core all will work with switch kites. You may need to get some pigtails but they all work fine.
