Opinions differ on this issue also, thats assuming it's an issue. The rider who posted this thread presumably has a pump for each kite, why ?McAbe wrote:I believe that SS is trying to maximize their profit in all ends.
Not supplying pumps with the new kites is one example.

They do <make> a LOT of extra $ by making the best selling kite (RPM 12m) smaller and cheaper to produce but still follow the price ladder and charge full 12m price.
I know this isn't a pump thread, but what the heck...while I'm replying...noody wrote:...
Right now I have seven pumps, I don't wear them out and don't leave them around to get stolen. What makes it worse is, no one wants to pay a decent/fair price for even a quality pump because courier costs have already taken a bite out of the deal.
Same with the supply of bars, it's a matter of opinion whether kites should be priced including a bar. Some riders would prefer to buy a bar from a different manufacturer because of the quality and some would like to save money at all costs.
Exactly my point, some bars are better than others and some that aren't so good are still suitable for some riders. The market is now split between few that price the package with the bar included, and others don't.CaptainArgh wrote: I happen to like SS bars and would consider them for use on other kites I flew.
