I see a lot about the Rhino bladders and I know North admitted bad batches of Rhino bladders, anyone have any issues with the 06 vegas bladders? My dump valves keep failing, other small leaks. Do I have any recourse, anyone else have a problem with the vegas and get replacement bladders from North?
If so, what is the best 'tact' to take when I contact them?
Oh, also, they put glass cambattens in the 06 and I have since replaced them all with the plastic ones but I have 5 or 6 holes in my kite where the cambattens broke and punctured the kite.
I like the way the North kites fly but I'm not crazy about the quality control issues. I was considering a Rhino until I heard about the bladders.
great kites but deflating on the outer break in outgoing tide here in Charleston SC is not fun, happened twice now, kite fell out of sky like it was shot. Always in the worst imagineable place, fortunately other kiters around both times to help me out otherwise I would have had to ditch the kite and swim in a long ways against a hard outgoing current.
