Looking forward to buy a SB 2014 and want to know more about the ranges and consider what's better for me. Kindly share your experience and feedback.

Cheers

Hi since a week I have the Cab 2014 10m...

After 1 session I can say: Much power. good low end, high jumps and good turning speed...The bar and bridle system are very different though. That took some getting used to, but overall really positive first impression.

The kite (yellow/blue) is also beau..beautifulll!!

:bye:

Thanks for the great feedback, wanted to know your height and weight and wind conditions .. Because I'm still confused between 10m or 12m

I thought they didn't change much from 2013 other than color scheme and maybe they got the steering bridle length correct this time (e.g. more low end).

I have not ridden the 2014 but I own a couple 2013's and from what I've read they are about the same since 2013 was a major redesign year so chances are 2014 is just subtle refinements if anything...

Got out on the 14m Yesterday, the Swichblade 14m definitely has some balls this year over the 2013. I was riding the New 165 Stylus and the 14 in sub 10mph no problem. I am a lighter rider, but i am definitely liking the power in the 2014. Hopefully I'll get some time on the other sizes soon.

Also, side note. My lead instructor, who weights 220lbs, was on the new Stylus in 7mph yesterday with a 17m kite. Flew the Spleene back to back and he said the Stylus out performs the Spleene.

I've flown the 2014 SB extensively. It's still a Switchblade.. it has that powerful feel and performance that you're used to. With the lower split on the centrelines, it has definitely gotten a bit faster, but is not twitchy at all. Boosting is really really good (we all know the SB has incredible hangtime). Unhooked it's really solid. Passes are good on it. If you have it trimmed properly it will slack off a bit for you. Smooth flying, great bar, awesome performance. The Switchblade we know and love!
