Comments:
The Switchblade is a really tuned kite for a wide group of kiters. It's stable, easy to ride, always feedback through the bar. No explosive powers and a great relaunch. The kite characteristics for a beginner or medium. Personally I think the depower stroke is a bit to long and I like a more playful kite with some possibilities I can look for. But, hey! This kite is made for 85% of the kiters having fun on the water. Jump easy in all kind of conditions. No worries about strange wind gusts. Just a best friend kite "/
