How can you tell if the stuff you are buying at such a good price is stolen or not?

Cause all of them has been bought from shops. Surely can´t say were the shop that sold the shockwaves so twisted that he took them from the local beach but the raven was brand new and so was the bar.

The best trick they pulled is downsizing their kites.

Now they say "the 11 is the same as last years 12" and guess what people are buying it. Put them head to head and you will see. 12vs13 looks more alike then 11vs12

Damn smart these guys at Best....or foolish are we?

They've not downsized them at all in my opinion.

2 weeks ago we layed the 10m Bularoo ontop of the 11m Sonic 07. The sonic was only slightly bigger, so sizing at least between the 2 makes looked right.

In other words pushing how much people are willing to pay for a certain brand.

Be it Best or any other brand. but while quality has gone up, resell price is still lower and best is going into the pricerange where I can grab a north rebel for the same price as a best waroo...

makes me wonder what the target audience is?? I think best used to have exceptional prices, but if every manufacturer asks the same price the going will get tough...

but then again there's always new competitors with below average prices!

Anyway everyone likes to own top quality kites, and that price can still come way down... But I guess someones gotta pay for the competition riders huh??

I'll have kites up within the next 2-3 months... check my site often because I'll have the basic design up shortly and I'll have a prototype made within the next month and a half with pics and a few people testing it...

I'm not going to link my site because it's obviously in here...


*hoping he doesn't get in trouble for this*
Interested to learn what your new kites will bring to the market? Have you got a radical new design that will blow away the current plethora of brands or will they be just another brand of kite. I am being slightly cheeky but genuinly is it because you want to design and sell kites that you are doing this or because you have seen a gap in the market?

sizing has always been within a meter. My old fuel 17 was 17.9. The 9 was 9.8.
