12m kite

Postby jespin4845 » Sun Apr 21, 2013 4:40 pm

i have a 2012 switchblade 12m, great kite for what i use it for, however everyday that i kite i find more and more pinholes on it, and i feel like one day in the next season its going to blow out in the waves, im not nice to my kites so i dont know if i plan on fixing it or selling it afterwards

the new 2013 switchblades have less power, and frankly thats what worries me, why have a switchblade if it has less power, i can fly something faster

what other 12m kites have the power of a 2012 12m switchblade? i know the rebel, but i am anti 5th line

same hang time, stability, jumping and forgiving nature is what i am looking for...

try the EVO from North, same "tractor" feeling, very stable and big low end
