so much negativity from someone who has actually never flown the kite
Where we suppose to test the new designs? This is why continuity is important. I am just stating facts. Switch has no designer at the moment. They paid for other brand designs and they implemented them poorly, in my opinion. Storm Voyager Freeride would be a better fit for Element5 replacement. The Ikon Peak clone is a different animal altogether and I don't have any interest in it. They would be far better off just to remove all the webbing crap from Element5 to make it lighter without paying a dollar and survive a year or two without this type of controversy.

The only facts are you have no idea of what you're babbling about, and you're pissed for whatever reason. Designer schimsigner, like you can name anyone from the big name kite brands. Who cares really?

I always knew who was designing my kites and this will continue.

Please - let the world in on your infinite wisdom & design your own kite. I'm positive they'd be so brilliant no one on this forum would have a single negative comment on them. :kiss:

Great idea!
A whole "line up" would be even better!
Looking forward to it!

The difference between me and "you" is that I did buy quite a few Switch kites and I will still buy more Nitro6, but I did not sign up for a cult. As a business observer it amazed me how they burst onto a crowded market place with good designs and low prices. Now, it looks like couple of beach bums showing up on Wall Street wearing flipflops. :rollgrin:

Rafał, the actual difference is that you keep on breaking our @@ with your repetitive negative comments!
Instead of moving on and trying to find what you like elsewhere!

btw I do not have a Switch kite yet but H3 looks sweet!

I'm confused because by claiming the new Switch kites are replicas of some other kites, you do *know* the designers since you're so dialed in, yes? But you're still pissed.

The great thing is the new kites work so well and lots of guys and gals about to enjoy them as first orders should be landing on their door any day now.
They have performance :D - quality :P and the price is right. :thumb:
Only one way to find out is to ride one for your self.
Happy winds.
