Why Cant I find a Sword 2 review?

Postby Splottie » Thu Nov 06, 2014 12:34 am

Is it just me or does it seem strange that Taaroa released Sword 2 yet there is zero chatter re: Sword 2?

Performance? how does it differ? Etc etc? Surely i'd have expected to see a write up on here?

Why doesn't Johnny Heineken have one? Yet he was world champ?

Seems like Taaroa are just supporting the french guys and giving them the foils whilst others must wait? Maxime, Julien and Axel and the french chick all have their foils?

I dunno something seems sus, if the foil was an improved version from the sword 1 i think we would have heard about its amazing performance by now.

Perhaps Taaroa have failed when designing the Sword 2. Or maybe realized that Maxime is a rider not a designer? Who knows?

Actually, the more and more I think about it...

I think something has happened in the production. Maybe a fault in the design or maybe they realised to late that the moulds they have made dont work?

There are at least 3 sword 2.0 floating around. Yet we've heard nothing about it.

Something very very wrong here.

Hi all

So much questions to answer :-)
Performance? how does it differ? Etc etc? Surely i'd have expected to see a write up on here?
Be patient, everything take time.
Why doesn't Johnny Heineken have one? Yet he was world champ?
Johnny will receive his Sword 2 in less than 2 weeks
Seems like Taaroa are just supporting the french guys and giving them the foils whilst others must wait? Maxime, Julien and Axel and the french chick all have their foils?
All this riders will also have their Sword 2 in few days, only Maxime has ride a Sword 2 and win the last French Speed crossing.
I dunno something seems sus, if the foil was an improved version from the sword 1 i think we would have heard about its amazing performance by now
Maxime has wins the competition with race wing while other riders was riding with speed wings.
Perhaps Taaroa have failed when designing the Sword 2. Or maybe realized that Maxime is a rider not a designer? Who knows?
Perhaps you are too impatient :D , Maxime is not our designer. Gilber is our designer and as you can see on his webpage, he has a small experience.... http://www.taaroa-hydrofoil.com/fr/cont ... -hydrofoil

Splottie, I'm struggling to understand what your post is about. It looks like accusations about design flaws, "looks slow", and production issues based on no actual evidence. Taaroa took the time to answer all of you concerns, and they all seem like reasonable answers.

Have you ordered a Sword 2 and are upset that you haven't received it?

I say we give them a few weeks and see if it is slow based on results.
