Simple, If you don't like Best, don't buy it!
There are many choices to choose from. Exercise your freedom to choose and stop the diarrhea of the mouth (er .
I own both Best and Slingshot kites. I like my Best kites better in some conditions than my slingshots. Slingshots (Fuels) are Bomber, but heavy.
My BFKs fly way better in light wind (I can't afford a Machine, even if I could I wouldn't spend that much money on one kite).
All of this bashing is humorous, do you really think anyone cares?
All of this pimp this and bullshit that is likely only being read by members of this forum.
There must not be any wind, or this thread would have ended a long time (year) ago.
For what it is worth I don't approve of their marketing practices, but it will not stop me from buying their products.
I can't stand those stupid Red Bull commercials and I still drink Red Bull and Vodka when I go out partying. Who really thinks "Red Bull Gives you wings"?
Kites might not give you wings, but they can make you fly!
Why aren't there any threads about the 2004 Slinghshot Bladder failure problems (or did I just not look hard enough)?
They sent me a whole new set of bladders for two of my three 2004 kites.
In my opinion that is a bigger screw up than anything mentioned in this thread.
