Billie you wrong on this. The accident was caused by an error on the manufacturing of the kite. Are saying that you as a User should have to test everything you buy because that is the result of your argument. At what level of testing is it reasonable to say it is a factory error?
I bet the no answering of emails is on lawyer advice.
I firmly believe that You sir, are one of the more open-minded people
on this forum ; your posts are typically Well thought out and and intelligible !!
SO it feels kinda weird, going against Ya on this one .
I'm saying that the manufacturer absolutely screwed up on this kite
no person that has bin around or a while , (especially a guy that kites the NW)
with an 8M in good wind, should Expect his kite to fly perfect out of the Box.
He even admits that the kite didn't Feel right ; but went against his intuition
just anyway !! :

From the beginning, it seemed to me that there was something wrong with the kite. Turns out, there was.
I've personally NEVER had a new kite fly perfect from the start ; they Always needed
a bit of tuning. Now the stronger the wind, the More a badly tuned kite is affected , and
this Was an 8M after-all !
And Last, i wanna know WHY he got launched , while doing a self-launch ?
What the Hell kind of technique did he use , that he didn't see it coming ??
I self-launch at Mohave, at-least 80% of the time, and that's some Gnarly sh*t
down there ; i Know my kite is "GOOD" ((BEFORE)) i ever Hook-In to the Damn thing .
I actually fly it Up a span or two, then back down to reassure myself that things
are OK ;
and anyone that Doesn't do an approach , with the same level of pessimism, is simply
being Foolish !!
I'm hoping i Didn't come-off too Rude ? But if it saves someone some medical bills
then it was Worth it.
