are you a f*cking joke?

ever heard of MARKETING...

seriously dude.. you border on retardation with a statement like that.

if i bought everything based off of an advertisement slogan I'd prob have to pick up a new car every week, switch insurance companies daily and buy a lot more beer than I currently do.. (not much tho)...

get a life.
cant believe i wasted my time to write this but you piss me off.

Yeah I never got why they say the stuff they do on this forum, hence I can understand when people write the stuff they do!

Anyway there hasn't been so much of this Best, is Best, is Best.... everyone elses kites suck stuff....... thus there has also been much less bashing as well.

You're a tool. Ever think that there are people that kite that don't live near a busy kite beach where people bring demos? Still waiting for a better solution...

I guess I am pointing out what has been drilled in to the ground for some time now, so sorry bout that, but this company is pretty amusing to observe.

try the waroo pro and youll see for yourself.
its amazing, it boost huge and goes upwind amazing, lacks a little grunt though but whatever. and it doesnt flap like the 06 waroo did.
i liked it soo much i bought a 9 pro after i demod a 7 meter pro in 25-35
try it for yourself and who knows you might just like it :wink:

P.S my gk sonic is still going to be my lightwind kite cause the sonic is da shit for low end

By the way, not everybody can cultivate such a super cool look like yourself so cut a hilbilly from texas a bit of slack.

I don't always think that if you don't have a solution you're part of the problem. But in this case... I really don't understand throwing shit up like this on the forum. You're hurting everyone's cause and it's a waste of everyone's time. Maybe you had a post like 2 years ago bashing Best and now you're just posting to say "Told you so?"

I grew up in Texas, I'm from San Antonio. If you're in Austin I'd doubt you're a Hillbilly unless you're out in the Hill Country with the incestuous deer population. Maybe it's just that you don't get out much? I've heard there is kiting on Lake Travis, but you probably have to drive 3 hours to Corpus for a good session. I'd hate kiting to if I had that situation.

We stand by the Waroo pro totally it's continued to sell throughout the season, in fact it's picked up a lot in the past couple of months, which is awesome.

But the truth of the matter is that no matter how good a kite is when it is released, 6 months later the same designer can make it better from the experience he has gained since that release. In this case making it turn faster with less bar pressure and with better back stall.

Hence the new HP will probably still be the best kite ever made.... :wink:
