Lampu had a good idea for a poll, I think this will be a very interesting poll!

Pls vote according to your riding level.

This poll would mean more if it were taken after kites like the Vegas were on the market, and tested by everyone.

Right now all we have are people saying bows rule, without knowing why North is so confident C kites can equal, or beat, a bow in fun range.

That's because they are not out yet, I 'm having fun on my cb/sb since august .... but I'll consider north is they come up with something better for sure.

Better wait till North bow coming near future.. Bow has alot of fun /safer than C kite..we will never go back to C kite after kiting C kites for five years..

we have to expect the results to be skewed to bow - if someone has 2004, 2005, ... C kites and is happy, they're buying nothing. So is another entry needed? "happy on C, not buying anything"???
