Re: Are Switch kites getting any better?

Re: Are Switch kites getting any better?

Alford. -The kite in a 9m will give the avarage Joe stability! Simple. Nothing where you will think "oh crap" what did I do now, that said, everybody can make a fault while riding. But the kite only does, what you tell it to do. It is a kite where you have great feeling and knows where it is in the ...

Re: Are Switch kites getting any better?

Maybe I'm hallucinating but I swear I saw "team rider" associated with jakoblondal's profile, not there now but after his first post, the E6 review. Great video, looks like an excellent kite but if it's coming from a team rider or a super advanced rider it means less to me. So what you are saying i...

Re: Are Switch kites getting any better?

Naishdude, no, you are correct. I was not on the element4 or 5 before.

Re: Are Switch kites getting any better?

I have not yet manged to get the element6 to tangle around itself. I have tried it on the Nitro. But not with this kite. Even the beginner that washed my kite like 7000 billions time last session did not end up with tangled line or a kite wrap. And oh yes, there was slack lines. :D I don't think it ...
