Indo is the best on that list.
Don't use snatch....not that folks don't like a little snatch now and again, but not really a name for a kite! :lol:

@ Oldnbroken: :naughty: One advantage though when using "Snatch": they could recycle an old Best Campaign for the visuals :rollgrin:

But seriously:
I think this time, The guys from Blade they do the right thing. Getting some crowd input, no nasty surprises after the fact anymore. :thumb:

Surge is an old Eclipse C shape. Xtract well.. Ruben is riding an extract BEST now. And who ever took snatch seriously should be shot... All pretty poor names to be honest.

After the name Fat Lady (which was taken directly from Big Mama) Skinny Boy did not take much imagination. While I like their kites, their marketing department can be very hit or miss.

I don't even know what that name is suppose to mean to me... it certainly is not something I think much about when I am buying a kite but it seems kind of like a silly name to me, not very inspiring and a bit immature or careless/reckless... but in a childish manner.
