I'll admit that the switch brand is made well. Infact my call they are over engineered. Leading to a heavy kite that doesn't perform as well as others. So even the switch model has compromises. It compromises the large knowledge base a distributor network can provide. There for there kites are not has high performance as some other brands who can draw on many more people for feedback. Their main designer doesn't even kites surf. So paying a part time or low cost designer yields less performance also.....foilholio wrote:The price of something doesn't always dictate it's quality though often it does. There is a cheaper brand switch which is higher quality than the big names.

I personally do not want to be flying the cheapest kite I can find.
I use my foil kite for kite landboarding and buggying. It is very easy to be 10-15 foot high jumping the landboard. My spine and legs are worth way more than the cheapest kite I can find. I also kite in big wave rocky location. I don't want a shitty kite failing and in the worse possible place. That could be deadly.
Fuck that shit. I buy the most expensive kite I can afford and the best quality lines.
