Re: John's medical/living expense fund

Hi skullcandy. Yes I had their short term/long term plan as part of my benefits as I did their best medical plan. I only received a year of short term disability. The reason being the slow medical process in America and taking many, many months to see overbooked specialists (after being bounced arou...

Re: Switch Combat. Detailed pics

I have been riding Switch kites for the last 6 months. They are built very well with top quality/name materials. Mine are holding up very well and just as good or better as any other top brand out there with top quality materials. As Reco pointed out, direct sales and no free kites are some ways the...

Re: Switch Method 7m

Billybob, trust me on this one. The stability thing is not an issue on the Method and has been blown out of proportion. I would not be riding these kites if there were problems with them. There are many good kite choices out there, and if I didn't like the Method as much as I do, I would ride someth...

Re: Switch Method 7m

I haven't noticed any abnormal flapping with my Method on the Switch bar. As long as it is pumped up well, struts clamped off, and bar tuned right, it should fly fine. As screwfootsc pointed out, most if not all kites to some extent will flap under certain conditions, but it doesn't necessarily affe...

Re: Switch Method 7m

Kawika, I second what your are saying. When I first got my Method kite several months back, the Switch bars weren't ready yet, and I tried another brand bar and tuned it to have equal line lengths. The Y on the front lines was closer to the kite though. It didn't fly very well on this bar (didn't tu...

Re: Switch Kites

I have the Nitro 10 and no problems relaunching it by pulling outside line in normal winds. If wind is very light, just pull front lines and let go to flip it back some and pull outside line, walk or swim toward kite to get it to roll back, or use the front line opposite rear line relaunch method.
