Hey,

I have got to be missing something here. What did there old pump look like?

Looks to me it is a regular pump with a green color.
"Place to write your name" and all the other plastic pumps you cannot do the same?
How about the instruction manual...... if that needs explaining should the person be using a kite?
The gauge may be an new addition; however, do you really need one?

I guess what I am saying they need to really revolutionize the pump. Maybe like the two stage pump where you have more low pressure volume on the larger pump and switch to a smaller stage for increasing pressure.

Maybe I am missing something and yes maybe it was a revolution many years ago over the hand help pump.

It looks like my Caution pump, with the exception of the pressure gauge. I wonder if it has a aluminum shaft, which my Caution pump has. If it does not, what's the big deal? Just the pressure gauge and the adapters?

OMG, that is the funniest thing I've ever seen! :rollgrin:

The power of marketing I suppose. I especially love the fact that it gives you a place to write your name. WOW! I actually wrote my name on my other pump, but nobody understood what it meant because it wasn't written in the "your name here" blank. You guys are geniuses. Here's $50. And it's funny that they think kiters actually want all those dangling nozzle adapters.

At least you'll be able to spot the suckers at your local beach when you see the green/white pump. That will be handy when trying to find a buyer for your old kite gear.
