carmel hill, i think you'll find the claim is untrue and has nothing to do with what has happened.

if best were squeezing out windwing production, why would bill leave....

maybe bill would come on and clear this up.


Maybe Bill was upset that WW wasn't doing enough to safeguard sophisticated American technology from those damn Chinese industrial spies... hey clearly a foreign name like "Lam" is not as white as "McCormack"

The way I read it there is no more production from that supplier, probably because WW's ideas are finding their way into other kites, same as what is happening with all the brands made at A Lam, which includes, best, Gloderiders, Wipika, Airush, takoon, etc,etc

oh come on,thats just steve having his daily 'swipe' at best, no one seriosuly believes his rumours, do they.


that's about as ridiculous as me claiming wipika are copying kites, given that they are the only Lam sourced manufacturer who don't have a bow kite...

Takoon are not made in a third rate facility like Lam.

They use a second rate facility with Cabrinha :lol:

Trust me, "conflict of interest" is just an excuse, and nothing the factory did had anything to do with Bill's departure. It's all a smoke screen.

The shot against best is complete disinformation. Windwing lost favor with its factory for two reasons, not ordering enough kites and money trouble.

This is according to whats on the WW forum. I'm guessing a bit too.

This time Best had nothing to do with something on the forum. All You best conspiracy theroists, will have to try again.

I hate to burst your bubble, but based on volume of kites sold, I don't think Best ever saw WW as "competition." Maybe a minor annoyance, but I seriously doubt this has made anyone's day at Best.

I'm not a Best fan or a Best basher, just guessing like everybody else.

C'mon dude, give it a rest. If you don't like a kite don't buy it, but this hijacking every thread just to bust on Best is really played out.
