If you want more juice:

1/ remove rear three-knot pigtails from the rear bridle line (it's a single line coming off the wingtip with an attached pigtail)
2/ tie an overhand knot in the sewn double thickness part of the rear bridle line
3/ put three-knot pigtail back onto bridle line
4/ repeat for other side of kite
5/ attach control lines (flying lines) to top knot of three-knot pigtail

This ought to do it.

Just purchased a 9m
Previously had a 2011 , New kite seems
Very different to the 09
Bar pressure way lighter and high boosts
Seem to have very hard landings
Also low end of the kite seems to have decreased
Just interested if anyone else tried the new 9
And have any similar observations

I have a 9m 2013 SB and the last one I had was the 2011. Actually yes the bar pressure is really lighter, the kite seems also faster.

It still is a very nice jumper like all switchblade. I liked it a lot actually. On the other hand I dont have any problems with the landings. It handles gusty wind very good like my previous Switchblade. I use this 9m as my high wind kite. So far I went out in 35 knots and I was still ok.

The best sessions I've had were in 25-30 knots. Bosting really high, really powered !!! I think that they did a great job on this kite.

I will be riding F-One B6 this year and I am waiting for my new kites but honestly I wouldn't mind keeping that switchblade as it really is growing on me.

I might try the pigtail mod but honestly I found the power adequate at 170 pounds.
