Thanks for the detailed response. I think you covered everything! If the swivel on the Switch bar is no worse than the one on the Best bar I should be fine, as I've been getting by with that one. Very tempted to pull the trigger on the Nitro now.
do not hesitate, I fly the Switchkites from their startup, I spend more time on thge beach than most weekend kiters as I am retired, I can kite every day as I live at the beach for 7 months a year.
even in the wintertime we put in some sessions.
I have Methods V2 with V2 controllerbar, sizes 11/9/7/5m
just a couple of weeks ago I crashed my 5 m, and had a tiny leak next to the main valve, I made some pics and sent them to Switch kiteboards, asking them if I could repair this and the best way to do so, next day got an email back that they would send me a new bladder at no cost...
I was amazed, in my whole kiting history, I never had one brand responding and helping me out like that !
The 5m was one of the first V2's to come out! so there was no regular warranty anymore on it, secondly I crashed the kite, which I wrote...well DOne SWITHKITES!!
so do not worry!
