Make an offer website for Best and Naish kites

Postby Kiwibayer » Tue Oct 15, 2013 11:50 pm

What happened to the "make an offer website"? It was launched approximately 1 year ago and you were able to make an offer for last years models. I believe it was run by Best but it also listed Naish kites. Is the site still up? Does anyone have a link?
Thanks.

Was anyone on this site ever able to purchase anything from there?

I think the prices were set so that unless you snuck up on the price; one would wind up overshooting the price.

I would strongly suggest that everyone hold off on providing their information to this website until someone with credibility stands up for it. 21 posts and 28 posts seems a bit light. ATM it looks like a scam. The site doesn't even seem to be using https:....re:. where they ask for your credit info for example..

I purchased from kitersoutlet.com a new 2011 Kahoona 11.5m kite only for $600 (+free shipping). I thought it was a pretty good deal! It even came with a pump! I think it was end of 2011 or beginning of 2012 when I purchased that kite. They don't appear to have updated the website since then.

Best also has not updated their main website. There still is no way to view the prices in US Dollars. The US site has all prices in Euros??? Or are those the prices in dollars, but the symbol is just wrong? Either way, you'd think someone would notice this and fix it since the website launched 2 months ago...

The idea was that Best would buy back the shops' leftover kites at the end of the season so they could buy the new models of Best kites. Best would even buy back other companies' kites, so that's why there are Naish and Slingshot models on there as well.
