Great kite... great service

Awesome kite... awesome company. Green hat as always helpful and high cust service. They helped me choose between Switchblade and Slingshot Rally when replacing my 2012 SB. Chose SB because I am lighter weight rider (175 lbs) and need less leading edge stiffness. SB flies little lighter and faster than SS.

2016 Switchblade is nice improvement to older model. Same great flying characteristics, bar easier to sheet in and out, safety simpler, inflation system is brilliant (no nozzle needed... pump hose attachment on kite!). It's my go to kite (12m) for most conditions.

Free ride dream

Been riding switchblades for years. Cost more than most but you get what you pay for. Grab a closeout and save some bucks. Great construction, does not deteriorate performance over the years. Punchy power, good water starts. Park and ride pull with good bar feel due to constant rear line tension. Boost and float is amazing hard to beat as a free ride kite with jumping capabilities.

great kite

if anyone knows me you already know my thoughts on the SB ( i think the kite pulls to hard and has too heavy bar pressure)....that being said...WOW. I had about 1.5 hour session on the 2016 Cabrinha Switchblade 9m with my surfboard in dead onshore winds. I had a blast. I did set the bar to the lightest bar pressure (Setting A on the wing tip) and had a great time. I know why this kite is timeless and why people love to fly them. They are versitle, handle the gusts and have a great range. I am also, as always, impressed with the Cabrinha durability. oh and the new Trim light bar is a huge improvement from the re-coil system.

Excellent purchase

As Adam said, the depower is great. I'm switching from North. Both brands are awesome, but cabrinha bars are more comfortable and the kite is better looking, but this is a matter of taste. The store is very reliable and the shipping was very fast.

Fantastic kite.

Fantastic kite. Excellent depower-- the new bar has a nice feel as well. I am switching over from Liquid Force and there is truly no comparison.
