can't fit all in the poll!

As you can see "Other" has 20 votes, so Airush wouldn't play an important role.

To be fair towards other brands in this poll I have to say, that Best has an information about this poll in their newsletter. It is directly linked, so other companies may do so as well in order to get an accurate result fair for everyone.

Toby,

Best sends its newsletter to nearly 20,000 kiteboarders, the vast majority of which are not Best customers... yet... :D We included the poll in our newsletter for two reasons. 1) to get a better sample and 2) to drive traffic & new users to your site because we think you do a great job. :thumb:

:lol1: You really believe yourself when you're putting that down?!! :duh:

Shouldn't it have been more like this:

"We included the poll in our newsletter for two reasons. 1) to get a better sample for BEST and 2) to drive traffic & new users to your site because I think it does me a great job"

Can this poll be removed as it is actually a good publicity stunt for BEST based on falsified information ?

but Alex is right, not only Best customers get this newsletter.
So everyone can participate, no matter what they ride.
Any company can do this to get more attention to the poll. It is up to them.....

it evens it out seeing how all the other brands have used this forum for years and i would bet that most of the votes for the other brands are years old kite also. it just a pole any way not facts of the real world but it is a good rep for the year 2004
