I don't get it,,, Oh wait a sec, maybe I do!
may be you still don't...
imagine the forum where everybody agrees on anything in the posts!
how boring hippy gay this forum would be. i hate the posts about new kites, nobody saw them, not to mention tested them yet, but already everybody post "this kite is sick". may be it misses "like" button?
and i wouldn't call my posts "99,999999% neg". useful, but not always immediately appreciated feedback for kiteboarding gear manufacturers may be? after all, almost all of my criticism is supported by the majority of the non-affiliated kite public and indirectly positively answered by the manufacturers by discontinuing the criticized parts and solutions. may be it sounds arrogant but i find proves to that over and over again.
glad you mentioned switch. as i said before i like their direct sale philosophy and i'm satisfied with their build quality, but they failed in two categories: performance and honesty. and now after couple of years they change the characteristics of their kites to more suitable for their market niche and offer the 30 return policy instead of just promising the mountains of gold.
i know i'm not flawless myself so i'm open for any discussions. but what aggravates me most is how kiters are blindly supports unscientific, illogical and purely stupid manufacturers sales arguments.
and i'm certainly not supporting the w_r with his jihad, i just advise you not to react to his posts. let him do all the typing. same goes to PMU, it is just hilarious how just his one single post unleashes the shitstorm from foil kite owners. i may be support some of his claims, but i don't mind if my friend buys and flies the foil. because i know and the statistics show he'll be disappointed soon
