early kites???????? cutoff date is august 7. I cannot imagine how anybody outside the factoy could have a kite on the water which was produced after august 7. I am a bit confused how fast these days Cabrinha kites are considered already outdated....

We should encourage brands to have full disclosures about potential issues and not penalize them for being forthcoming in a helpful way. This is a simple mod to the bridle config and we have seen is a common occurent with bridle kites. The manufacturing date and clear pictures are very helpful.

The alternative is another brand telling us that it was sometime in january only and from china instead of sri lanka and can't be traced via serial number and then there's a different color bladder or t-valve and let its loyal customers fend for themselves with detaching valves.

We should vote with our dollars to reward honesty and protest the spinning. Let's encourage good consumer practice.

The word 'early' was mine. I have no connection with Cabrinha. I assume that the term will be more relevant as time goes on, but there may have been 8 days of production since the cut-off, so in that respect the ones needing modded are the early ones.

mhhhh, no honestly i like that they check all the stuff before i buy it... this is liek, ah you can do that, and maybe that etc pp....

the powerline will length about 10 cm and, then??!
any setup options???!!!

If these cabrinha are ealry kites, i just want to pay a "early kites"-price...

like this,. I - personally - say no. my new kite will be no cabrinha:

i´ll check out:
- naish (i´ll wonder about the quality ybout the helix, how many bad crashes on the water will the fronttube take)
- f one- the bandit will be really interessting to come up
- gaastra, the new jekyll looks really nice. just heard good stuff about it...

any opinions on these 3 kites from you guys. what is about the quality at those. i´m not that kind of hardcore guy, but my 2 kites will have to last for 2 years.

OK Thanks for clearing up why you posted Jimbooo. I had wrongly assumed it was because you wanted the answer.
