If they would just have the kite factory dig out the prints for the 2008-2010 Waroo and sell them for $350; could be number 1 in the industry! Bring out a $99-$150 kite bar...
I'm up for a multi point inflation (not one pump) 2011 Best Kahoona with the only tweak being a wider trailing edge like on the 2013-2015. MSRP could be $375 and I would buy new.

Come to think of it, that may start to crowd up our beaches a bit......

There is a significant portion of kiters who don't buy into the latest hype. Therefore, Best could just keep updating colors on their 2015-16-17 TSs and Rocas ad-infinitum, and people would still grab them for a bargain price. I bet all kite vendors&manufacturers felt quite a pain last year during Best firesale.
