2018 Switch Kites Element 5
Switch Kites Element 5.
Sizes 13m (Flouro Yellow), 11m (Black/Orange) and 8m (Flouro Yellow). Each $490 or less per kite for all three
Control bar V3. (2 available) Each $250...or less if you want the whole quiver. The prices are about half what you'd pay if you wanted to buy currently new versions
Lets make a time to meet at Brighton Beach (Melbourne) where the kites can be pumped up, lines can be inspected etc.
You can even test fly the kites (you'll need your own harness)...or you can watch me fly them (if there's any wind)
I personally found the Switch kites to be well made...they are toughened in all the right places and have several adjustments available to help you get the feel you want. The Control Bars can be configured wide or narrow and are also easy to use and service/adjust. The whole quiver would suit a beginner to intermediate who wants to be able to deal with most of the conditions encountered in Melbourne. You'll see quite a few people flying switch kites in at Brighton Beach (the Kite Coach at Brighton...Roberto uses switch kites to teach his clients) and elsewhere on this website in forums you'll find reviews etc. If you google Switch Element 5 you'll find videos and reviews.
I purchased the 11 in late 2017 and the 8 + 13 in early 2018. The 11 suited me for most winds in Melbourne...the 8 and 13 were used much less frequently.
