Core GTS3 - A better RPM?

Postby GraemeF » Mon Aug 11, 2014 1:27 pm

We ran a demo yesterday and our guy was railying on a 7 when most were on 9s, its a really smooth power delivery.

Check out iksurf test this is undoubtedly the best piece of kit we've seen in quite a while.

A bit more on UK facebook Page

Watch out for this one it really rocks...

I er look up a bit and there it is... :wink:

Every kite brand that isn't trying to stick a patent for below bar depower should have one.

Would you like me to explain how it works?

The GRF of old exalted the virtues of the under bar system to all that would listen... But the new GRF, what is his stance? Maybe Pinky could answer?

I finally converted my under bar depower SS bar to over bar thanks to friendly Epic dealer on here.. Tested it in the big winds yesterday and worked a treat! Not that you care anymore! :)

The GTS3 does look nice BTW..

When you've done the same thing for fifteen years, it's kind of difficult not to care, we're still helping out old slingy customers with spares, it's not their fault slingy decided to act mental.

You'll not notice me saying anything bad about the kit either, but I can suggest something is better and only then if I personally believe it. You don't get to spend thirty plus years selling stuff to folk on the beach by lying to them.

As to the above/below depower thing I can see both sides of the coin and the easiest to push is above the bar obviously, and if I showed you a bar I've got in the office, full carbon titanium, black lines, super light, super strong and you had a go with it, you'd have trouble giving it back.

And that's all it takes, if something really is better, folk spot it immediately and want it, the only problem is getting them to part with the necessary and explain to them they're 'worth it'. :wink:

PS Pinky is a fag!

So who should he compare it to Bozo? What other point of reference has he got?
He's been persuading folk to buy one brand for years and now he's selling another and I gather on a mission to persuade as many as possible to switch.

I may be a fag, but even i can see that, I'd scratch their eyes out.
