Now I realise that I was totally wrong, Naish has a 90days (3 months) warranty policy so I am far out of the warranty period because I have my gear for almost 10 months, so my warranty is not valid, I thought at first that the warranty was valid for 1 year. But anyway I think this post is useful to the the kiteboarding community so that everybody knows that Naish has 90 days warranty for their kites and bars
90 days warranty is that a joke or what?
So my Naish Shift bar can fall apart after 10 months of moderate use and for Naish this is totally normal
Thank god my 2 Torch kites are fine till now at least.
PS: many will think that I am a troll and I just want to bush Naish but it is not like that. I love my Naish kites and my first kite was a Naish Aero 10m back in 2002 and I did not have any quality issues with Naish products till I had this minor bar issue today. But I think it is time to speak out so that the companies know (not only Naish but some others too) that many kiters are fed up with their poor warranty policies and customer service.
