@Tony. If you are Anthony Van Dort, aren't you glad Toby brought your article from an obscure site to the most followed forum dedicated to kite? Perhaps all you wanted was to be paid?
:bye:
LOL , hardly.

Someone else posted it before Toby and he seems to have deleted it and copied the contents of the link into a new post.
WOW! :o :o :o Toby, I know this site belongs to you and everything, but, you didn't have to delete my topic about the matter,

Sue me :roll:

And you do look on the home from KF?
It shows automatic feeds from pro riders websites...
Toby, chill.

Someone else posted a link to the article. Then you posted and his disappeared.

Was only asking.

Ah, so you did.

Not very fair but it's your site I guess.

why does this forum have no "i couldn't care less" emoticon?

flexifoil - hadlow = "i couldn't care less" emoticon

north + hadlow = "i couldn't care less" emoticon

and how does hadlow's joining the horth benefit the vegas sales? there are maybe only one in thousand kiters who know how to and can ride like hadlow, so why change vegas and why limit the target group?

Why would they discontinue the vegas? They will do it like Best did, who came out with the best GP for most of the PKRA riders and the best extract designed specifically for ruben lenten but neither of those kites are really their money makers, they make money on their main line of kites for the average kiter.

These pro kites are not designed as a primer market kite, that is the extract is not designed to make money but it is designed to promote the Best brand. Likewise for North and whatever product line Hadlow comes up with it will be to popularize all the other kites like the rebel and vegas.

As for myself I love C kites and am always excited when a rider helps design a new C kite, so I can't wait to see what Hadlow comes up with.

That's an interesting spin on the story...

It's kind of written to say Flexi is "discontinuing the Hadlow line of kites...and, oh, by the way Aaron is leaving also." :)

Whatever the spin and whatever kites Flexi produces next year to fill the void left by the Haldow line, it is pretty cool to see a company and pro parting ways respectfully. You never see that. Nice work guys! :thumb:
