Dear Arcsrule and everyone that rides foil kites, yes some of my posts seem harsh, but if you have a look they are posted to people who also have interests financially in the success of their foil kites and usually those are the people that I am after. I don't like it at all when someone posts something that goes like this" it is the best kite in the world...I can fly upwind for 500 miles and get 500 feet in the air. PS you can get one of these at http://www.myshop.com
." Those posts piss me off. We don't get any fact from them and all they do is negative to the whole forum theory. I have not tried to sell anything through the forums and I am sure if you look at where my harsh posts are you will see exactly what I am talking about.( go on now go look.) Also I am sure you will find that I post regularly to beginners looking for help regardless of what they ride. Also if you look at anything I post I never reccomend any particular brand of kite but suggest trying them all and finding the right one for you before buying. Sure sometimes I rip on foils but usualy only as adamantly as someone else is ripping on LEIS. A positive and unbiassed post directed at providing accurate informatiom on any kite has my total support, even though those kites are much more my direct competition than foils, but replying to a newbie looking for a new kite with a http://www.myshop.com
posting on the forum to me is a bad way to sell a kite. Its like sending Grandma to a Chevy deallership to buy a Ford ( woops or I guess to a Mercedes deallership to buy a Porsche For the Europeans).
Of course as I always say thats just my opinion. Look at the first page of this post and see where my "harsh " posting was put. It is exactly why my posts ( sometimes ) are harsh. The guy telling someone why foils are better is directly involved in selling them. HMMMM I belive he's unbiassed.
