I did some specs research, mathematical, some aerodynamics engineering based on the specs of the kites ... nah just pulling your leg.
Well I consider myself a heavy rider cause I'm 190ish, I used to be 220 just a few months ago, so I'm working had to get to my ideal weight (160-170) which puts me right at Switche's specs.
One of the guys I talked to, is 200, and he mentioned how powerful the Method is, he uses a 9/7 quiver and a 13 Element, I didn't like the E's bar pressure and some other issues I had with it, so I opted out of it, and since I'd like to progress in freestyle a bit, I'm not Hadlow (although I'd love to, that kid is sick!), just want to work on some cool moves, but my main goal, is get really good on the waves, that's what drives me. We don't always have the conditions here in FL, but is what I'm into.
So I can only remain positive about my acquisition, and remain positive that it will all work out. As a matter of fact, I'm sure it will work. I'll keep you all posted, and believe me if the kites suck, I'll be the first to broadcast it.
Tnx, and I really do appreciate your concern.
