I live in Brazil. I will not have a chance to try the cloud before buying. Besides staying with the kite I already have, my only option is talking to riders who have flown both kites and get their impressions.
I don't think the Cloud is magic. I just think that it MAY be better for me, based on the characteristics people are telling and my riding style.
When you say that the Cloud "misses the four first gears" and tells me that you have never flown it, i think you are being somewhat irresponsible.
I would really like to hear from people who have tried it and didn't like it. Please stop me from making a mistake or help me moving to a kite that is going to be better for me. Thanks.

i actually wanted to respond to the guys who are missing being born light-weight for the talent.
as you, i once tried to find advice here on KF regarding switchkite. i got the some positive reviews from as i now suspect affiliated forum users (if not just fake users). and the result was wasted money.
so my advice - try the kite before you buy it. do not believe what they are wrighting here.
and try it in every possible condition you can have at your place.
By the way, i am a heavy rider (105kg). Let's assume that the Cloud really have a better low end. It will work with heavy and light riders, right? Of course it will be even better for light riders... Don't you agree?eree wrote: i actually wanted to respond to the guys who are missing being born light-weight for the talent
