WAROO VS SWITCH BLADE TEST: Today in Brasil!

Postby surferazul » Wed Nov 23, 2005 10:39 pm

Well i just asked to two guys in the beach to test their kites cause, they were parked on the beach and they kindly agree. I have to say i kite since 5 years and have a mid level...
This has been my first aproach to flat kites.
So this thing called Waroo, quite impressed me so soft and right placed on the window, it turns sharp and accurate, and had an awesome upwind abylity, the pressure at the bar was so light, just the necesry i needed to feel good and powered.
In the other hand, the cabrinha bow, was really powerfull, that much that i was difficult to make it upwind because of the exeeded traction i guess.
it was flying deeper into the wind window so it had much less upwind, and it has a lot more of pull when i was turning the thing up and down.
So the feeling has been much more possitive to the Waroo that was like a ferrari, ahead of the truck feeling of the Switchblade.
I guess this guys have been testing much more, and being the last, had reinvented the kite so they are far ahead.
Give it a try!!! u will believe!

I disagree with you. I have a 12 switchblade and for wakestyle it is the best kite out there. The switchblade doesnt sit far back in the wind window. It goes upwind even better when it is juiced. I am 140 and 14 years old and stoked on the switchblade.

He was making comparative statements about the Switchblade and the
Waroo, not definititive statements about the Switchblade...

How can you disagree with with a comparison when you have only ever
experienced one of the kites being compared?

how can i compare, because all best kites are junk and are made very poorly, and cuben fiber is a joke. Why do we need it. the poleyester works great.
