The Waroo or Allura will be available in 2006 and we anticipate the kite to start at $499.
Whats your complaint, Gumball said they would be here 2006 & we're still only in the first few weeks?

Give it a break Sq, it looks pretty pathetic.
And to everyone else, just ignore the crap, they're full of it and always will be. But you can gaurante they'll fall flat on their faces again sometime soon.
I now just find it all highly amusing, and as time passes by, I for one, will never purchase, or advocate to any of my friends, any Best product.
They are the biggest joke in the industry, and plenty are laughing hard!

Sq... for as many people you think your marketing hype attracts, I can assure you, it pushes the same amount away forever.

Give best a break! They are only acting like every car manufacturer out there. Tell me if you can go by a New 2006 Camaro? No, why not they just displayed one at the Detroit auto show. How about a 2007 Ford Shelby GR1? No,m it is a concept car. Just because they tell you something that does not mean they have to be true to their word. Concepts are just that, and if they make them or not is none of your buisness.

if you are going to best bash, make it worth while and be original.

I put this avatar up of the dude hauling his dick in the wheelbarrow especially for this post...we're talking about BEST here!!! If I were running a kite company, I wouldn't make promises that I was not sure I could keep. I'm not bashing any company in general, but I do feel the way that certain kite companies have overpromised and underdelivered speaks volumes about the character of the people running said company.

What I will say about Best is that they need a logo that doesn't look like a flying penis...not all of us get excited about the idea of flying penises guys!!! Maybe they could change their logo to my avatar?

That being said, when was the last time you saw Donald Trump make a promise he did not keep? He is one of the most successful businessmen in the world and I GUARANTEE you all that he didn't get to where he is by overpromising and underdelivering...quite the opposite. He may brag once he has something going, but he doesn't talk about how his company will make all others "obsolete" just before his product literally blows up in his face... :lol:

Bottom line is you get what you pay for. If you buy a Pinto, you really shouldn't expect too much performance out of it but it's cheap and affordable. If you buy a Ferrari on the other hand, you pay a lot more for the same size car but get MUCH better performance, looks, quality, etc. It's as simple as that, case closed!!!
