What is the resale value like? If you buy a $600 kite and hate it can you sell it again for $500 or so? If you can, then it's definitely worth buying one and giving it a try for a month or two.jkrug wrote:My final thought on Switch is that, if you can't try before you buy, it's worth buying-to-try one of their kites given their low prices.
Lol this is the funniest post ive read in a while. Basically spending 80% of the post saying you trust no one...I don't mean that in a bad way but why ask then?esg wrote:I never heard about Switch until reading about them on this forum. Their prices are unbeatable. And honestly, Naish, Cabrinha, North and other kite companies retail prices are almost insulting.
But I'd rather pay big dollars for quality. Than save some dough and get a piece of crap.
There aren't any reviews in the magazines(not that any of them provide any honest, constructive ones anyway).
I'm probably wasting my time asking. Since all I'm going to get is Switch team-riders saying they are the greatest. And all other brand affiliated kiters saying they are the worst. But is there anyone out there that has ridden them and can give an honest review on the performance of their kites and bars, customer service, part-replacement, quality, etc, etc, etc?! I'm particularly interested in the Element.
No, actually I don't think I've had a chance to try out a kite before I bought it. I have demoed kites, but didn't like the ones that I demoed.peterheirman wrote:@davesails7 - do you try out all of your kites before you buy ? That's nearly impossible especially for the smaller sizes. So you trust the big brands who can sell you a 'jerk' kite, but it's from a big brand so you trust it.
