If you wait long enough darling they'll be paying you to take them away, all the smart folk kept their 2009 models.

the fuel had a long run but I think it's about done. Slingshot had a bridled fuel out for demo a month ago at a demo fest and nobody wanted to ride it. People rode every other kite best cab sling rpm north but nobody wanted on the bridled fuel because it was a "c kite" even with the bridle. My guess is the production numbers on the fuel are so low they could discontinue it from their lineup without a problem and offering the bridled version has done nothing to help sales. People look at the bridled fuel and rpm and just buy the rpm instead.

Best is offering their ruben lenten kite the extract so even if slingshot stops production of the fuel we'll still have a 4 line true c kite. Thanks Ruben!

It's true the bridled Fuel is a crock, both with and without the bridle, but the Best kite is no better, speaking to a Best rider the other day, they're without a kite that can get any serious air either.

Old style 'C' kites are pretty much done, and why would anyone want them when the ride quality of kites like that GTS3 are so solid.

I'm not real worried about the extract, they just need to keep working on it. As long as they have Lenten on their team they will keep tweaking it until it is right.

As for this statement: "old style 'C' kites are pretty much done, and why would anyone want them". Well I can't really explain it, but there is no kite in the world that gives you the same feeling as an old school C kite. I like it.
