Re: What is end of season / used gear worth?

The above answer is more right than you know. Here in the US I’ve seen anything from five-year-old kites being sold for 75% of the retail price to new model kites being sold at 50% of their price having been used maybe three times. Generally, you can bet on about 75% of retail after a year, and 50% ...

Re: WOO 3: Who has received it ? You Order date ?

Ordered March 15, just received a shipping number from DHL. In Hong Kong now, no ETA for when it arrives to me in the US yet.

Re: Convert 2016 Best GP bar to four lines possible?

You are correct. In 2016 they started calling it the BLK bar. Very similar to the 2015 and prior years, but they have the bombproof North Ironheat QR. I should know, I have it too. I did not have time to dig out the old bar tonight. I will get some photos up this weekend so that you can decide if yo...

Re: 7m Turbine - 82 km/h max

Is the Turbine the kite to replace your old Rally?

Re: Convert 2016 Best GP bar to four lines possible?

I will take a look at my 2014 bar tonight. It should be reasonably simple, especially if you are willing to do a mini-fifth by splicing the existing 5th line into one of the two front lines. They are damn good bars, only thing I dislike is the QR. Replace it with a North or F-one QR and the bar is p...

Re: WOO 3.0 pre-order

Anyone know which phones work with the woo 3.0 other than Apple or the expensive main brand android based phones? I expect pretty much any android-based phone that released in the past two years is going to be capable of working with the woo. Pretty much all you need is Bluetooth and modern version...

Re: What is the cost of making a kite look "cool"?

I'm more likely to not buy a kite due to graphics that are distasteful e.g. penis with wings, skeleton, monster or death theme, swimming sperm. I do miss the old Ozone Razor style graphics. That was a beautiful kite. Hey, I think the new Best kites look great! Flying penis be damned. Big bold size ...

Re: help me to do a list of 2018 Kites without pulleys

Post #3 updated with new kites. I honestly did not expect this list to be so big. Copied below: Ozone Enduro (Open C SLE) Ozone C4 (C kite) Ozone Edge (High AR SLE) Ozone Catalyst (Entry Level SLE) Slingshot RPM (Open C SLE) Slingshot Turbine (High AR SLE) Slingshot Rally (SLE) Slingshot SST (Wave S...

Re: help me to do a list of 2018 Kites without pulleys

I think it is a little unfair to limit the list to whole brands. There are some widely used examples of good kites without pulleys from brands that do use them. Also, I think Slingshot is pulley free too. You will also end up with a list which includes a lot of C-kites, but it will still be useful. ...

We need to imagine that last jump in this video in Traifa ended kiters death in stones and concrete ? :(
Was Ruben Lenten, a few years ago. He is fine. Or at least as fine as he has ever been.
