Hey dudly, I ride the crossbow ,switchblade and drifter. I ride the crossbow and switchblades exclusively on the b setting........I find both kites feel more direct , you have a better feel for both kites...although bar pressure is slightly higher (but I am lookin for a bit of a workout). Also the kites depower much faster, i.e. you don't have to throw the bar all the way up to depower, on the A setting often you are often fully sheeted out with top range winds, on the B stteing I find I am hardly ever fully sheeted out. Finally people say turning speed is slower.....I have not noticed this or cant tell the difference. So in summary kite more responsive direct feeling, earlier depower when sheeting out and no real noticeable turning speed change. PS I am only a freerider/oldschool.
