What is it about Slingshot that seems to constantly attract Bottom feeding Best riding Bozos?

Is it that they're wannabee's and pissed that they can't be?

Or is it just awe at the style and skill of the average Slinger rider?

Is it like a Waroo?

No it is not like a Waroo, other than the fact it's a kite and flys in the sky.

I think he was refering on the double pulley which is found on Best kites. Looks like the same pulley setup to me? Is that a bigger deal than it should be?

Had a full quiver down in La Ventana, Mexico.

Seemed everyone was stoked to demo one! More 3rd party reviews to come once more riders get on them. Next stop Montana Snowkite Rodeo.

These kites are gonna be sick nasty snow kites, can't wait to hand them out like candy...

Excelent pics..!!! :thumb:
Can somebody tell me:
What is new in the "new DD2 control bar"? Any Pics?
RPM feels like a REV? or like a FUEL?
Please, discribe the ride.

Thanks
