You forgot Best!!

The '07 Best Yarga is probably the best C-kite I have ever flown and if it get gusty you can just use the SLE bridle.

Wind Weapon to Skimbat to Kitewing. Nothing new as this has been around along time. How can you test something that is in production already.

Who's gonna be in Nags Head for that when the Real Triple S slider comp. is on the same dates? I would assume that most of the riders stated will be at Real.

Lesson here... beware of what you buy! I bought what was advertised as a mid-aspect "steady" kite. I think almost everyone on this forum would agree that a mid-aspect kite is thought to have the following charactaristics: 1. Stability in the air 2. Sits a tad farther back in the window than a high-...

What's funny to me is the marketing now to get rid of extra stock. On, one of the banners reads:

"Slingshot Octane - #1 in rider satisfaction."

If it was #1 then why stop production. More marketing bullshit I guess.

If it didn't sell well then how could it be #1??

It would be more believable and reliable info if you weren't a Flexifoil rider and dealer. I own both kites and find the Waroo definatly has better depower. Now I'm not saying that one is better then another but it is what it is. In 18-42, I'd like to be on a 9m but could ride an 11m so the 10.5 is ...

ruffridah89, Can go the same way with Cabrihna. Remember the 1 year warrantee? Bullshit!!! I have a friend (female) that just does cruiseing and small jumps that bought a '07 Switchblade 2 and 2 1/2 months later after the 2nd time it hits the water, the LE ripped. (not on a seam) Cabrihna will not w...

I'm not convince of the merits of battens on kites. I don't think its been proven that they actually do much (apart from add weight).

Weight?? Maybe the battens add an ounce or 2. Lets be honest now.

Can you give us a review of a kite you don't sell. If you did, would it be such a good review? I doubt it. As for your statements: "Jumps were more C-kite style then bow." Wish I had a buck for everytime I heard that. I'd buy my own kite company. In fact 90% of all bow/sle kites feel like C-kites. S...
