Re: No pump with my new kite ?

The switch pump is good quality and worth checking out if you want to buy one at a good price. Is is something they are buying from another manufacturer or making themselves?

Re: 2012 slingshot RPM review

RPM is certainly a great kite. Have slingshot dealt with the problem of the trailing edge flapping itself to destruction?

Re: Airush 2012 New Sectors -- 54, 60, and 66cm V3

@Schmidy Thanks for the reply, I am definitely looking into a freerace type board. Seems to make alot more sense than buying a big kite :thumb:

In what sort of wind can the average rider go upwind on a Sector with a 12m?

Re: Bandit 5, Naish Park, Switch Element. Comparisons?

@TomW: yes totally agree, it is impossible to be objective and online reviews are not going to encourage anyone to buy a kite in my opinion.Reviews in magazines are probably even less reliable since they are making a living from the advertising revenue and need a long term relationship with the adve...

Re: EpicKites (3rd Generation. 3G kites)

Or Mr. mo'wind you could buy a 16m Switch Nitro Racer for $865 shipped to your door.... Decisions decisions... Lmao the price difference is hilarious! I dont know how the Nitro Racer compares to the Infinity in terms of low end, think they are probably both pretty good low end kites - but to be hon...

Re: Bandit 5, Naish Park, Switch Element. Comparisons?

I would agree that a lot of reviews of the Element are a bit early considering it has only been out for a short while. There is a real problem getting objective reviews on kites, whether it is online from people who are directly or indirectly linked to a brand or in magazines from people who may rel...

Re: Bandit 5, Naish Park, Switch Element. Comparisons?

Just because he owns a Switch kite doesn't mean he is pimping. I'm thinking of moving from C's to an RPM style kite so I'd love to hear a comparison between these kites. If people think the Switch Element is as good as an RPM I'd be willing to try one. I don't see why anyone would want to spend twi...

Re: Bandit 5, Naish Park, Switch Element. Comparisons?

Bandit 5 looks like a nice kite. Is it an Open C? From the pictures I have seen looks more delta shaped. Open C kites have a lower projected area for same flat area from what I know. I dont know if the additional area in the wing tips is what gives Open C kites that ultra stable feel?

Re: Bandit 5, Naish Park, Switch Element. Comparisons?

I can give you a rough comparison between the Element and the RPM. RPM is a bit faster turning with light bar pressure and more oriented to unhooked freestyle. Element is a bit slower (but still has fast pivotal turning) with slightly higher bar pressure but with more low end, and more oriented towa...
