Default Buying advice on 08' Kites......

Hello? Anyone home? i have cash in pocket thats burning a hole. Im waiting for 09' BEST Waroos to be released so i can get a couple 08's on clearance.......
no sense buying untill then right? Anyone know when that is? I typically buy last years kite, mostly becouse ive tried it already and i know what im getting....but also becouse i keep a deathgrip on the cash.

Anyone? ........................SkyWay Scott?

That's the way to do it, imo. I think it's marked down now. Danny would know for sure.

Ha', funny. Danny posted while I was on.

Extreme really should have a newsletter with notifiers or something.
Philthy, I might be selling my 9 'roo at a good price.

Default please Pmail me on the 9m Scotty.

But does 20% go to 40% round october? i should jump now, ya know....all it takes is in one week for Extreme to just get sucked dry of all clearance stuff. i missed out last time, or did i really? at the time he sold me the new 07' Roo....just think i could have bought a crappy 06' Roo if they werent sold out... lucky me!

please Pmail me on the 9m Scotty.

I remember 2 seasons ago EK (I was there then) sold out most of Best's clearance in about 3 weeks. It blew my mind how quickly we sold out.
We were calling Best every other day saying "send us all you got".
Daryl cleared that stuff pretty fast.

I think the explosion of the market and the numbers the following year dragged out how long the 07 kites were on sale. (More kites).
I am sorta just guessing, but seems logical.

I have no idea how much inventory Best has this year or how long stuff will take to get cleared out (?). I doubt anyone but Best knows.

I don't think I will get in trouble for saying the initial markup on the Best kites isn't nearly as much as on some other brands. So logically, expecting a time when they will get discounted up to 40% off (like a few other brands do) is just dreaming.
In other words, I wouldn't wait too long.

yeah 07' was an explosion of SLE's....must have been the reason.
You didnt answer Danny......and why are you selling that 9m? you demo'd me that kite one 15knot day......the boost was amazing for a 9M in my weight/wind range.......and the looping was unreal.
