It's been interesting to read the responses on this forum and others.
By the looks of things the name change and then the 2019 colour scheme of Duotone's merchandise, it could possibly be a poor year in sales.

That's just about what that brand "name" deserves...

The Kites kind of look better than the 2018 ones...but that isn’t saying much. The problem is that, with the extremely disappointing brand name change, at least the design should have been amazing, best ever if possible. They must either have tremendous trust that their technical side will pull them through, or be completely ignorant of what a bad brand name can do in such an image conscious sport. I guess we’ll see when market share figures start coming out.

In contrast, from what I have seen, the Eleveight Kites look pretty good even though the name is kind of bad too.

Spare parts like before. No chance with anything, only the name.

I doubt no one will buy Duotone.

Do you stock Naish or Cabs? or is that your hope...

I say everybody will buy Duotone! Would you understand that!

The most important here are the people behind the brand. Today, you can copy everything, but you can't copy the people. That's why, so soon, Duotone will have a nicer sound, easier pronunciation, because it will sit on top of all brands.

Regarding the NTG, they have a long way to go to prove they are up to what we expect. We shall wait and see...
