other wise the build quality of the kite is good.
switch is notoriously obsessive with low profile wing. so they are slow to turn, hard on the bar and you are not going to get any low wind grunt there.
i have seen personally how 13m Element started to fold its wingtips in 6 or 7 m/sec when other brands 11m kite with same weight kiter did perfectly well.
plus the aftersale value is close to zero....
what ? I'm out on E 13 in 9-10 ms and it's rock solid. only issue is that I'm so over powered that I'm depowering and losing steering input control because back lines are so slack. 80 kg on strapless Slingy Celeritas..
