I absolutely agree, Rocas are my favourite kites. i am also waiting for some feedback about new rocas, since they claim they have redesigned it.Windigo1 wrote: ↑Mon Mar 11, 2019 1:58 pmI have been riding Best kites for 10 years and my experience has been good. I currently have 3 Rocas 2017 and I love them the hang time is insane. I was thinking about getting a 12m and 9M with the current sale deal going on to upgrade but I could not find a single review of the 2019 Roca. I'll stick with my current gear until I get some feedback. I understand they redesigned the kite. I'll keep an eye on this thread..hopefully someone has been able to try them.
As far as I know the endless long"BEST bankrupt" thread got closed, because somebody of their Team responded and clarified that they are no where near bankruptcy. I also contacted them twice on their website and I got a respond within a couple of hours. So I think from this perspective all things seems to be working well.POACHER wrote: ↑Mon Mar 11, 2019 3:22 pmHmmm.....
Nothing against Best, and this is MY opinion but I would maybe give them a wide berth until they are back on their feet completely. (I quit reading the million page Best thread a couple weeks ago......are they back?)
Even in the instance of scoring a great deal, as a newb you should look to a brand that will offer you some warranty support/replacement parts. Again no shade against Best, but there are tons of deals on 2018 gear from just about every manufacturer right now. Not oddball stuff either, legit normal kite and bar sizes.
Trust me it's a shitty feeling when you throw a company loot and 8 months later their website is down, phone disconnected, and return emails from customer support respond with crickets.
Call your local shop/dealer and see what they have left over.
