By static grunt, I meant sheet-in-and-go ability - felt somewhat like the XB, easy to just pull in the bar and ride away, building speed - rather than needing a bit of a working to get rolling. Realized I should have been more specific but typing on a damn iPhone is annoying and I didn't feel like redoing it...Kiwibayer wrote:Not sure if the Switchblade has more grunt but it is heavier on the bar and maybe this gave you the static grunt impression. I always try to compare upwind performance and correlate this to power. The Nitro3 flies far forward in the window and wins hands down in upwind performance. The bar pressure is lighter and the kite seems direct and nippy. Not sure if the Nitro is lighter in weight - I doubt it. The Switch guys go a bit overboard with reinforcements.
Anyhow, both kites are really good and you will be happy with either the SB or Nitro
Have you heard what your friend thinks? Really need more input!NHKitesurfer wrote:I'll see if I can get my friend to chime in who rides both, but his SB is 11m and Nitro3 is 8m so it may not be the best comparison.
