Is Bill Hansen still with Eclipse or Switch?

I'm just wondering and waiting for Switch kites..
I can't get an answer on purchasing a Surge from Eclipse, so I wait..

Is the Surge profile going to come out as a Switch kite??

Goooo Bill...

He's with switch now. One of their shapes sure looks like the surge. Wouldnt be suprised if in the end he just took the design he and Felix worked on for so long to Switch.
Or maybe he upgraded it a bit more.

As far as i know Chris Cousins is designing the shapes of the new eclipse stuff himself now. The surge is ofcourse still something Bill did.. but doubt it will ever see daylight. (except for some protos that were made).

the saga continues... i thought Chris said that we cold contact him is we had any questions? Guess he didn't say he'd get back to us though... we'll wait and see what happens in 2011 and if Eclipse actually does anything. Wasn't aware Bill was doing his own thing, I'll have to check it out.
