While BRM Clouds are light weight, they are expensive. If you want a strutless kite, check out the Gong Strutless Kites - gongsupshop.com. The option of a center batten works well. My 17m Gong Strutless weighs the same as my 9m E5. Unfortunately Switch dropped their strutless development other than for very small sizes.

For those who tried the Element 6, could you tell which kites of other brands are similar in terms of performance and flying characteristics?

Regards!

I have been on my 12M Element V6 for over a month now. This kite is truly amazing. For a guy my size(190lbs), at my local spot that blows 10mph-22mph on most days, this kite is perfect. Look for a video review soon!

Has anyone noticed the kite material on this kite feels nice and thick? I just received my new kite, maybe it is just new, but it does feel like a more durable and thicker material than previous models.

Felt the same to me. According to the product page, it's the same Chang-Ho cloth as all the other Switch kites.

Has anyone tried Element 6 for unhooking / freestyle? How it works on that side? what about pop/slack?

Is this true? Love for someone who's demoed both to chime in? What about compared to the Evo?

I wish there were more readily available demos. :(
