Just as well he called them “valuable improvement” then.

What’s wrong with you that you insist on dissecting every reply and with the only aim of denigrating someone else’s opinion?
If I wished to be uncharitable I would suggest that he's on the spectrum. But I'm not, so I won't.

Back to the thread:
SlingShot "Switch Blade"?
It’s definitely similar to other kites out there. But a switchblade? No. Looks like higher aspect to me
Anybody with me on it looking a lot like the switchblade with that second pic now? This could get me to pay for parking at the event site to demo. Switchblades were good kites.

If I read it right it said good at loft, hangtime & upwind. So, they took the ‘drift’ out of the Rally and increased the other aspects? Or ?

Are they replacing the Rally? If not, how is this differentiated from the Rally?

I like the idea of that. There were some flight characteristics with the Rally that I did not like. The Rev was more harsh. Could be just what I am looking for. Still, I have my eyes set on another MFG for my replacement kites.
