Consistently the Torchs and fuels are the best design every year

For your taste or mine ?

For which riding style ?

For which conditions ?

Which size ?

color ?

Bag ?

It say 'In your opinion' there's your answer.

My answer is REV but surely the FUEL has made the most impact on the market over the years....i.e. it was the original mid aspect freestyle kite in 2003 and then one pump in 2004 :remybussi:

free your minds from pimping. North? You must be kidding me. Slingshot? Naish? Wipika? What a joke. Most posters on here have probably only flown the brands they pimp anyway.

The best kite ever was the one Ben Franklin used to discover electricity. Even if it's a myth, it's still the best. Electricity is life.

Eclipse Thruster, Slingshot Rev, Naish Torch, Ocean Rodeo's ,
and all other hybrid kites.
Best kite = hybrid
anything else is to specific (wave or free style)

The hybrid is the best kite ever.
