Re: Kite Industry Statistics

I think you may find that the quality of your market research is going to be directly proportional to how much you paid for it. :lol:

Re: Grind base material test

Well, the plan is to use a cosmetic skin on top and the base material on the bottom. The cosmetic top skin is infused on glass to give a really gloss finish (this is done seperately). Then the core and glass is placed between the base material and top skin, and we do the infusion. All that is left t...

Once you commit to the launch, don't think of 'launching' the kit...
