I know the 2018's just came out and I'm sure not very many people have ridden the 2018 Switchblade. But does anyone have an opinion of the new model vs last years? Trying to decide new vs discounted last years model.

Hey Skent,

The main difference is the high tenacity dacron on the leading edge. The dacron does make a pretty huge difference in the rigidity of the kite and will also be more durable and crisp feeling as the kite gets used more and more. I'm happy to set you up with a demo if you're in the Gorge. My phone is 503-334-9680.

Cheers

Hi, the new model has different (wider) wind range from 2017. Is there a design change or how is explained? Does it really pull more for the same size? Is manueverablility affected?
