SWITCH Dual/Single KITE by Prism - Tie it to a log while you enjoy a family picnic, or challenge yourself with dual-line control and acrobatics...all with the same kite! The Switch’s ingenious sliding bridle lets you convert instantly from a stable, traditional single-line kite to a high speed, acrobatic dual-line stunt kite. In single-line mode it’s stable and super-easy to fly for all ages. Just let the line out and park it in the sky. Or clip your stunt lines onto the color-coded bridle and it becomes a lively stunt kite for loops, spins and basic aerobatics. The long colorful tail adds stability in single-line mode and slows things down while you learn in stunt mode while leaving a shimmering trail in the sky. Assembles in seconds and comes with everything you need including an easy-to-use hoop winder for single line use, plus a precision measured dual-line set with flight straps for stunt mode.

Today I received my Switch Single/Dual Line Kite from Harbor Wind & Kite Co.. Made it to the beach late this afternoon. Not knowing what to expect, I tried the single line arrangement first. Wind was 13-15mph. It went up like a rocket and the tail kept it on track. Great stability. Perfect.
So next, I tried the dual line set-up. Easy to change and launched right into the sky. Hey, is it fast? YES!!! Smooth as silk and easy to control. Moderate pull, just enough to let you know you are getting a great work-out. Rolls, figure eights and zig-zags that are dazzling and it is a beautiful kite zipping thru the late afternoon sun. After about 15 minutes, I had a crowd watching and several kids wanted to try it. No problem, I handed it off and each one got it right away. Definitely could not do that with my Quantum Pro.
This kite is made for the entry level flier and it is what every entry level kite ought to be ... FUN, FUN, FUN! Love it!
