Though I agree that at one point Best were the kings of the marketing BS, almost every kite company puts out loads of it now. Read a bunch of company rider's comments about one of the products they use and you'll see. They all start to sound the same after a while. It's very tough to sift through all the BS to get good information and the kite companies like to keep it that way.munteruk wrote:This looks like more of the same bullshit marketing that Best are famous for. A new gimmick to help pump sales of the new season kites.
What point is leading edge twist if the canopy is still hanging in one piece off the back of it? without a split in the canopy how is the leading edge going to rotate? Flaps on a plane can sit at different angles because they aren't continuous. How can this work on a kite canopy?
Has best actually measured the "twist" occurring at the joints? Where is the demonstration that the joints do anything other than generate hype?
TwistTech sure seems like a gimick to me, but I don't want to be like those closed minded people who wouldn't believe that the earth is round or that the sun is the center of our planetary system. I'll keep my mind open and see if it sticks, but for now it's just annother new idea like all the others that are out there right now (e.g. Sigma, V-Sonic, Batwing, Venturi, etc.).
