You can say what you like about them and I hope it is a genuine review not one of the many spoof reviews I have seen.

But we have seen the way they do business bullying suppliers in order to give an apparent low cost deal if you are one of the few that actually had anything delivered and the product is damaged goods before it even arrives

Oh and don't bother asking about the warranty.

In his latest communication he is tired of making "these fucking boards".

guys, do you know the "foe" list?

Put wind riders user name onto the foe list and you will never see any reply from him anymore.

Problem solved! :thumb:

how many people would currently be happily riding foils they got a great deal on had this guy not been allowed to pursue his crusade here. I think it was plain to see that the Mango legitimately wanted to deliver. A scammer is here and gone. They don't stick their name and face out there like he did. Remember it was Wind_Rider who first put forth the opinion that Carafino is a scam artist and no one else. Hind sight with a bit of common sense clearly shows Mango was producing product.

Wind_Rider tanked his own investment in person.... burned that bridge real good, but his pathological repetitive follow up slander burnt everyone else that ordered by killing the venture that would have likely made it off the ground. I think its safe to say people like arcsrule have Wind_Rider to thank for their investments tanking right along side his. I have no doubt Mango owes this troll his money back, but any other investor that finds themselves out of pocket might just as we'll look to Wind_Rider when seeking a responsible party.

Who's side should we be on? The guy who physically sets about producing a less expensive carbon foil for int distribution, or the guy with the keyboard who burns it and all the investors money to the ground. You decide. My only opinion is that this guy is a full on troll with no positive input whatsoever and should have been banned a long time ago.

Your entitled to your opinion. And Im entitled to mine. Its called a discussion forum. :roll: :roll:

I haven't really got time to argue as Im at an event that is very full on but run fairly/openly/inclusively and we are in 2nd place 1 point off the world champion allowing for a DNF in the 2nd race due to breakage and 12 points clear of the next boat for the information of the people who very unsporting took the piss out of my results in my previous event the Moth world championships because as an amateur I couldn't beat a fleet that consisted of 80% pro sailors for Americas cup/Olympic backgrounds but I had a go anyway.

Those same people got 3 competitors at their national championship due to threats from Carafino. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:
