They want $679 for the new Cab bar in Australia!

In the past I've observed Cabs lines having an unacceptable amount of stretch and the depower line needs replacing without a huge amount of use, even though its covered in a PU tube it still wears at the metal triangle. I would hope they've resolved this especially the line stretch.

Just a touch under $2,500 for a complete 12m Switchblade.

As far as I can tell Cabrinha are well and truly the most expensive brand now?

Should be interesting to see what effect this has.

I had a 201 11m crossbow. Kite was great. Lines were shit. Stretched 6-8 inches. Darn kite really never flew the same way twice because of all the stretching.
Sold it. Now they say the lines don't stretch. Fine, but the bar and lines are so expensive I decided to search other options. Enter Switch Kites. Loving my 12m and 8m switch nitro 2's. Amazing boost and hangtime. Very light bar pressure. Easy relaunch. Stable. Oh, and less than 1/2 the price of the new cabrinhas. Honestly not sure about line stretch as yet, but will keep an eye on it. Given the price, I can accept some stretch. The kites? Built like a tank.

That reminds me on those idiots who are waiting 24 hours in the cue in front of Apple stores before the big sale of a new IPhone (and then they come out screaming "YES, I've got it..."). Time for them to see a shrink!
:duh:
Get a 2013 Switchblade at half of that price. In my opinion only nutcases would spend that sort of money when those newbies come out.
