Seems you've opted to take the low road. Guess we're bumping along in the gutter now.
Not really sure how my posts are BS. I probably know more than you think and I've actually been quite restrained with my postings.
Sorry if all the probing questions on the E6 bugged you, but people know the E6 isn't an internal design and want to know where it came from. I'm not the only one who thinks 6-pulleys are a step in the wrong direction. Bridle wrapping is a big deal to some of us too...
The real problem is with you. You don't know how to promote a product without getting all defensive. It seems all your energy is being consumed by defending the new Swicon... or should we call it Swichicon?
You have a serious misconception that the value of someone's opinion only correlates with their riding ability. If this were true, then I'm only listening to Marc... who would also be the only one designing... er, aah, I mean outsourcing kites for you.
I currently have a quiver of 6 kites, 5 of which are Switch. Unfortunately, I believe this number is going to be trending down. [Edit: Four are Switch, Two are SS]
Peeps like me are core to your business. Word of mouth by me probably sold 3-6 kites for you. Peanuts, but stoked customers* are good to have. I'm a 60-year-old kiter who's not going to be on the cover of magazines. Now that you know that, guess you and others reading this sad thread can stop reading because I've lost the thread of credibility I was clinging to. However, I frequent the Gulf Coast, West Coast, Gorge, La Ventana and occasionally Maui. I'm relatively new to kiting, getting into the sport right before Switch came online, but I've windsurfed since '84. I'm a certified PSIA ski instructor. WIA certified [WIA now dissolved]. Of more concern for you, I'm probably going to get IKO certified this upcoming season. I'm not an official globe trotter, but I'm poised to retire and will be in contact with more and more kiters. Yeah, the customer is probably always wrong, instead of right, but you have to at least pretend to listen to your customer base and pretend to give a shit and value what they ask/say.
You are right about going for a test and to stop listening to people. But you should hope that I'm not the only one who stops listening to you. Is spewing posts on this thread part of your job description? Does your employer support you on this?
*Now a totally alienated Switch customer,

You are too much.
Lot of people starting to see you through your Bullshit posts.
Also please post some video of your self riding to show people how qualified you really are ..
I state true facts for people to have true info.
The E6 bridal will not tangle.
All other Switch bridal from the past will tangle.
Easy as that, I have tangled even the e5 a lot. That span line is a band aid that does not work,
You should really go test for real instead of listening to people.
Plain and simple.
