Hi,

Which one you guys suggest to buy 2012 Vector 12 or 2012 Switchblade 12 ? I have never tried Cabrinha Kites before! Here in my city the wind range goes from 10 to 20 knots in best season! My body weight is 158 lbs and I like freestyle and freeride :)

Tks

I would go with the Vector if I had to get a Cabrinha I flew them a little bit down in Costa Rica in Jan, I would check out Slingshot Rally or the Liquid Force Envy. I live in Florida and during the Summer we have nothing but light wind under 15mph on average and I'm still able to ride my Rally 12m & Envy 12m upwind on a Slingshot Misfit 136 & Glide.

But again I would go with the Vector vs the Switchblade the vector tends to relaunch a little better in the lighter wind.

The SB has a tad more power, and the vector is a bit more manoeuvrable.
Your choice

Nico, what is the difference between the Vector and the SB on the high end? On the Cab website the Vector does not seem to have a lot of range, but I would like to hear from someone that has ridden both.

I principaly ride the drifter pretty much everytime I go out.
The details I put in earlier are my main impressions.
The vectors we use mainly for schooling purposes as this kite does everything OK.
The Sblades we use for rentals, as these are a bit higher quality with a bit more power.
Also all the vectors I have are SE (schooleditions) as these take a beating everyday of use, and are tough enough to keep a good resale value.
All round general use vector, and more power cruiser SBlade.
