Like why would anyone want to get rid of bladders? It would make the kite heavier, more expensive to make, and more expensive to repair, all for what?
I haven't had a bladder leak in 3 years!
I think the patent guess is right... and also some spin to put out some good news after the hell fish fiasco. Standard business tactics
I admit they almost lost me in 2005 with all the hype but hey it's business they all do it. They won me back when they started with the waroo and now the 08 waroo is really a great and completely different kite. The newer companies these days are pimping just like Best did back in it's early days... it's fun to watch, and really it's all part of getting the name recognized.
I still laugh at how much resistance Best got... being banned from places, etc, all because they wanted to sell kites for LOW prices instead of raking people over the coals for $2000 for a single kite.
Ok end rant.. hahaha.
What I'm trying to say is, I love this sport.
