You didn't mention what brand(s) of kite you're using. Slingshot bars come in sizes 43,50, and 58cm. Switch's bar is adjustable from 45-55cm.
If you're using the Switch bar with a kite that's sized to be used with a 43cm bar, the 45cm setting on the Switch bar will make it slightly more responsive, but will work out fine.
If your kite is sized to be used with a 50cm bar, you may find the Switch bar to be inconsistent since it doesn't have a 50cm setting. Your kite will either be too responsive or not responsive enough depending on which setting you have it on. That's a 5cm (2") difference in length, which you will notice.
If you're kite is sized to be used with a 58cm bar, you will find the 55cm setting on the Switch bar will make it slightly less responsive. You're only 3cm off, so it won't have that much effect.
