Hey there guys,

Firstly, I am not affiliated with Best or any other Kite Brand out there...i'm just a side liner who out there for fun!

I want to know why there are so many people out here that do not like Best...Seriously, they are good kites, perform well, fast moving, big air, good quality....and most of all they are like half the price of the other major kite brands....and I personally believe they perform better than the other brands....no offense to anyone, this is my optinion, and i'm entitled to it....and believe it could just be my style...maybe others like different gear for themselves....its a preference...

Ok, now let me know, the HellFish....there is always talk about the HF....Yes there was a recall for HF....it wasn't for any sort of quantity....It was when the manufacture manufactured the kite stitching wrong....so Best called them in and gave everyone new kites are lenders untill the HF were fixed.... Sounds like they really stick to their word...I've hear of someone's kite spliting and the kite company really too ages and it was only that a friend who knew someone in the company was the one that helped out to have it replaced....so there's one top on Best compared to one kite company (i'm not here to bag anyone...and will not release any names).

They offer the 30 days trial...and if you don't like it, send it back and you get your money back.....geez thats a bonus on top of all the major brands...they don't take back gear because you don't like them. So in other words Best are pretty confident with there products....and trust me would not be around still if their products were all being sent back for refund. So I believe here there are alot of people affiliated with competitors out there making up stories really trying to give Best a hard time....

hmm....strange... Have you all personally been to the Best web Site??? http://www.bestkiteboarding.com I believe you all really should check it out...have a good look through their FREE! Movies they let you download....check out their kites in action....yes and these kite really can be used unlike these suppose stories about them being so "C.R.A.P", these guys use them and they really Kick some ass on these kites....they really perform well on the movies....

what you think maybe they design 2 different kites, one for their pro's and one for the public....hmm abit far fetched here. Check them out, you will be impressed! And the HellFish hmm not able to be used in light winds....check out the website on the movies a hellfish....shows a 25 m in like 7 knots or something and this guy had power too..

Don't forget about when Best opened their online store there were Large Kiteboarding Companies really against the whole thing..."its getting ride of the middle man, getting rid of retails....cutting them short" hmm then why have these large companies now are in the process of copying Best with the online store....hmm maybe they saw a good idea and are abit jealous that they didn't think of it in the first place.

I just think if you just have a trial of the gear...if you don't like it after 30 days...haha no loss you get your money back...not bad!

Also why doesn't everyone just leave them alone and let them sore! Best have come along way for a company who is being put down so much over the years....and I personally believe its not from people who generally use the gear....i believe its from people affiliated with other competitors...Watch give them 4 years....and you will see some great stuff!


Cheers guys.....give me your thoughts!

Just read what their site has to say about the Nemesis ("the best ... high performance kite on the market today") and about the HF ("the best kite you will ever fly" "traditional kites are simply obsolete" "70% reduction in weight")

With the HF Best made the marketing more important than the actual product.
And I understand but don't like the 1$=1 euro policy.

Where have you been the last few weeks? On Mars ?

You mention the Best website. Well go there and look at the crap about the Hellfish being the best thing ever,and how it makes everything else obsolete.

The truth was it was THE WORST kite ever invented !

They are ALL recalled. You cant even get one !
You say they "were fixed" They were not fixed.
They are GONE !

What on Earth are you on about!???? :roll:

Hey.... I have nothing against that company .....they have good kites & boards and also good prices too , but they are not half the price from other bands because the Yarga 13 complete has a retail price of € 750.- euros....for Europe and the retail price for a Slingshot Fuel same size has a retail price of € 1.200.- but you have to be stupid to pay that.....on any web shop ( in Germany ) you get this kite for less than € 900.- so that makes € 150.- more for a kite which I believe has a better quality specially the bar.....

Other story is their f****g marketing ......you remember HF ??? or something about a 06 Nemesis ???bow kite ??? everybody has now or will have very soon a bow type kite and what is with Best ???

That happens when you open your mouth to much....... shit can get in....

Regards

Sorry, I didn't read that. :sleeping:

Anyway, I like to hang out on the best forum (:winner2: comedy value :lol:) & I can see you've got your finger on the pulse.

Ok so, you've had a Yarga for about 2 weeks and you already know it's the best kite out there. Naturally all other kites are shit and everybody who flys them hates you.

Sorry mate, but we already know our own kites are the best and the funny part is... most of us aren't flying Best (contrary to online claims from Best employees/zombies/hypists/claimers << that's why it's funny :D).


BTW, you're "sure some extremest may hook a bar up to a helicopter one day and got for a ride"....... yep, finger on the pulse Image

well,

Would have guessed just standing up and giving my 2 cents would result in insults from at least someone....hmm stoner.....

May be one of these people affiliated with some other brand.....if not oh well...get the dick out of your ass buddy.

All I was saying is that ay half the guys here are probly not in the position to make any comments about Best....and yeah the HF was on RECALL but back out there....so i've been told ...where do you get you info?

would like to know so that i keep as informed on all the goss in Kiting...actually Nah i'd rather spend my days out on the water...

anyways....all i say is no one can make a coment until they have used the kites and equipment...if you haven't you should try it before believing all the shit that goes around!

Cheers!

So i got my Yarga out on the water and was trying some new tricks, and of course missed the handle again and the kite wet to the ground....but as the kite was sitting on the water top the shape seemed odd....the kite seem not to keep its shape too well....like when it sat on its back it would do a W shape

Maybe you shold use more time on designing and testing your 2006 EH kites, instead of coming with personal attacks on Best.

....oh I just forgot you don't know how to make kites....sorry :lol: :lol:
