As a rule? what the fuck does that mean? The Amp and Hydro and Airblast are all great kites. In fact the Airblast set the standard for other kite companys to beat for 2 years.The Gimp wrote:Wipika, as a rule, have fallen off the pace. They dropped their bundle about 2 years ago, and haven't really picked it up again.
Name a kite company that has not had any production problems?The Gimp wrote:Wipika had problems with mylar leading edges 18 months ago. Their big kites were infamous for exploding along the leading edge seam and for delaminating.
Where did you gain this knowledge? Name someone in the "industry" that is dissing Wipika.The Gimp wrote: Industry-wide is is acknowledged that Wipika have fallen off the pace.
100% of Wipika's customers will never be as good as "yesterdays heroes." How much should they pay to get the "top guys?" Would they be less expensive so they could spend more on R&D? (A very flawed argument.) Dude you need to lay off the weed when you try to put togethere some ideas to post.The Gimp wrote: Wipika have tried to fight back with a "trendy" campaign of recruiting seemingly well-known kiting identities like Mauricio, Flash, Lucifer. This angle indicates that they have lost their focus a bit. Firstly, spending big $ on kiting "identities" at the cost of R&D is short-sighted and superficial. Secondly, their lack of research and insight is evident in their choice of pro-rider. All these guys are yesterday's heroes; the top guys on tour could smoke their asses any day.
Please post your review of the flying qualities compared to other kites. Also suggest how the build quality could be improved to be "brilliant." Wipika reads this forum and will fix any flaws you can point out.The Gimp wrote:In terms of flight, Wipikas fly ok, but they aren't brilliant. Build quality is very good, but not exceptional.
