- Overpricing to suggest a high level of exclusivity, quality and performance, and market it that way too.

- When quality and performance are not up to par: 'Well, just because something is expensive blablabla'

Lol

The lines are good, and the swivel too if you're into that. For the rest it's a very, very mediocre bar.

It would be cool if they actually designed the bar for use in salty water and sand, you know stuff that is found on 99% of the beaches on this planet..
but no, it rusts and jams... really? WTF???!!!

Would be even cooler if you stopped dragging up your repetitive crap every thread with core in it.

You made a big deal of saying you were switching to Ozone so get on with it already? Or was it just for effect/attention?

Thank f*** for that,

I do it because I care, seeing you deliberately torture yourself with constant brand assassination but unwilling to move on was pretty upsetting, I am glad you fondly let go and moved on.

Well done

It's here. I had a look at the site, I always rode Core kites so I'm a fan of the brand but frankly speaking it seems not very different from 4 and 5. It's obviously impossible to evaluate just surfing the web, must be tested in the real world.
Anyway, the fact that there are no noticeable improvements from model to model is a common problem in mature sport gear. In the first glorious years of a newborn sport, every new model is a game changer (to use the most beloved slogan of all brands). Then, year after year, as long as the gear is refined, differences between models become smaller and smaller, until a revolutionary concept is born and all the brands must adapt to the new standard.

I don't think you can win with kite releases. If you keep a very similar kite people seem disappointed that there aren't more differences.

If you make too many changes - people get upset that the kite has changed too much (search for the Airush union v4 thread to see examples of this).
