Honestly. If I was going to get a C kite, it'd be a Fuel, Flexi, North, Naish or something that already has a proven reputation with C kites.
Considering most dedicated or new to Best riders are on bridled kites and most dedicated C riders are probably already on the above mentioned, it's going to be interesting to see how few of those Best sells.

I am betting it is very similar to the other best 08 kites... the waroo and nemesis look almost identical except for some cuben and the yarga doesn't look much different either.

Not sure what they are doing... looks like all three are actually hybrids?

Isn't a hybrid was a C kite with a bridle?

Only ridden the 08 waroo and it's freaking excellent...

Don't forget you can return it in 30 days no questions asked.

North? No way... trust me on that one. Ask Colin about his ... it's sitting in a trash can, only ridden 10 times. It's so bad he refuses to sell it for fear of getting shot. Flies great when it holds air which is almost never.

That was like 3 or 4 years ago that Colin had that problem, wasn't it?
The Slinghys were just as bad at leaking back then and Best's kites really sucked ass back then. :twisted: Things change.

Anyway, here is the link to the C kite by Best.
I am curious who their target consumer is with this kite.

I better hop off of here now.

No, it was (about) a year ago. He bought the kite brand new, it wouldn't hold air for more than 15 minutes ... changed all of the bladders (all of them) for airtime bladders twice and they would pop as soon as you inflated the kite. Helped him a few times baby powder the whole deal, no luck. We both gave up on it.

North gave him the run around so he bought a whole quiver of 07 waroos and threw the North in the trash.

Recommended to use it's own C bar too. It's all on the EK page I linked to.
Who knows, maybe it will eclipse the waroo, what do I know.

Gotta agree with Tom. That is a hybrid kite, not a straight C kite.
