As an example ozone canopies pin holeing easily.
Cabrinha bladders not as robust as others
I've heard that some north kites are too robust perhaps they are over engineered?
This Switch model was used during the 90's and 00's with a number of different windsurfing brands. All of them, less one or two disappeared and none made any headway in terms of gaining appreciable market share. Why? A zillion reasons, ibid the 4 P's of Marketing for starters...This said, there will always be a place for quality / value priced products.marlboroughman wrote:All except Switch have a bad business model. Maybe with a small and debatable exception of US we all pay ridiculous prices for equipment with lousy or better yet non existent customer service nor warranty. What Switch is doing is the way of the future for this particular sport and that is take lessons and once independant buy equipment directly from a place that provides customer service warranty and spare parts. The idea that you buy quiver of 3-4 pieces of cloth for the price of a motorcycle and receive no back up what so ever is so ridiculous that only effects of strong doses of adrenaline can explain subjecting ourselves to this shit.
