Hey guys here is the real scoop.The foils kicked ass in the begining but then the inflatables made alot of advancements and jumped into the market as the kite to be on and the manufactures through advertising rammed the tube kite idea down your throats.But with advancement the foil kites are making a come back.The new foil kites of today are outjumping the inflatables they do have twice the wind range and go upwind way better than the tube kites.I was in fuerte at the pro tour event and the psycho riders where out jumping all the inflatable riders and I witnessed some big name riders trying the psycho proto types and every one claimed that it was the best jumping kite they had ever ridden and remarks of the stability where solid as a rock and almost impossible to make fall out of the sky and the softest landings ever had.Marcus Damsel rips and in aug. was in the top 10 in the world on the european tour and he was riding the mast air at that time,he is now training on the new psycho in Fuerte and Tarriff to compete on next seasons tour.He emailed me that in his first 2 weeks of training that his trick list had doubled!!!Ted Bautista is a up and coming rider from Va.Beach That is absolutly ripping on the psycho and was voted best Trick of the HATTERAS PRO contest and will be competing this season on the psycho!!!Another stand out was a peter lynn proto type that a average rider was out jumping the big names in Fuerte as well his tricks whern't the best but his hang times where double the inflatable riders(flash,koch,sudrat etc.)So all you rocket scientist that know it all just remember nobody knows how stupid you truly are until you open your mouth!So you can follow the pack or you can step up open your mind and be a leader!!!

My original bet still stands:

I'm willing to bet big $ that NO ram riders make it onto the top 20 PKRA list for 2003.

Ram riders are handicapped by the inherent aerodynamic inferiority of the ram airs.

I don't know if the above comments about the Psycho are true... but I'm prepared to bet that because of instability (esp in rotors), slow turning, aerodynamic inferiority, poor control, etc etc, NO ram riders will make it onto the top 20.

In the spirit of fair play and "sportethics" (my politically correct version of sportsmanship), your wager is a very generous
gesture.

I wish I could take you up on a bet,
except that my wife would kick my ass,
and I'd be living under the kite in the garden.
sincerely thanks anyway,
take it easy,
KG

And Cyclone (does Cyclone stand for gay retard in Oz?), you should go back to flying foils where you belong.Its bad enough you ex-foil freaks are allowed to trade "up" to real kites (LEI), as it pollutes the talent gene pool.Take my advise retard - stick with the losers.. they miss you.
