Toyletbowl is right, they are two very different kites.
For the record the price difference is not almost nil

Kite Only:
9m Waroo = $445
9m TD2 = $949

11m Waroo = $558
11m TD2 = $949

13m Waroo = $614
14m TD2 = $999

A mate has an 07 T2 14m and has been learning on it for 6 months + and he still has trouble with the bridle tangling in crashes (often swims in) and finds it very heavy and slow!!, When powered up he finds it very hard to turn and he's an ex pro windsurf speed sailor of 100kg+!!

I have tried it a couple of times and compared with my Ion's/ Thruster it so slow you have to wait for it after a move, or start the kite turning before the move!!

I dont see how anyone can say the 14m T2 is a "Fun" kite, for me its a real dog!!

Si.

Your SS prices are consistent with the current published sale price I'm seeing.
Your Best prices are lower than other Waroo website sales.

So...the Waroo is still cheaper at the sites I'm looking, but not as cheap as you are finding.

for example - both sale prices at Real
11m Waroo = $699
11m TD2 = $949

I guess it is worth checking around. And yeah, fly 'em both! :thumb:

bob, the Waroo pisses all over the TD2 in a jump out.

It's faster, has way better frontal stability and a much sweeter bar feel with more direct steering.

the TD2 has been on sale pretty much since the day it was launched, because it sucked so bad.

Bob lays down some pretty good info and really doesn't dog on anything. So instead of more info regarding the kites and prices the tread go's south due to choads. Lame...

Jump off, HAHAHAH its not the kite but the person flying the dam thing.


I could boost higher than you.... HAHAHAHAH

Welcome to best.... :baby:


Although this was pretty funny...

If that is all that Slingi has to offer to recover lost market share I would start looking for a new job. One may find Best's marketing with half naked 14 year old looking girls questionable, but you have not found a good way to counter that yet.

It pretty hard to counter, if you go for lower age it become illegal.
