Hi all

Over my first season of kiting have had a mixed set of kites i think im leaning towards getting quiver of one brand trying to decide between cabrinha switchblades and naish pivots ? Out of all of the kites ive been using an RRD religion 9m is my favorite struggles up wind unless its blowing but turns really well and is forgiving when mistakes are made. my least favorite is a switch nitro 12m only had a few Sessions on it but its a bit technical to fly and it seems to require some muscle to turn especially when trying to redirect up after sending it down when landing a jump.

So thanks in advance for opinions offered switchblade or pivot?

Prolly wouldn't hurt to mention the style of riding ur into....

my pick would be the pivot

Pretty sure everybody's favourite kite is their smallest one....

Great review here....

I ended up demoing it for a couple of sesh and totally agree with what thorn said.

the switchy is a solid kite too, both have good bottom end and are good all rounders....

but if ya gonna ride in the waves a bit, I would go the pivot.
