a Yarga 13 for over $1OOO ?!? Best is nuts

Postby knyfe » Tue Nov 29, 2005 9:37 pm

dudes,

did you realize that Best is selling their new Yarga 'O6 for over 1000 bugs if you choose the 13 ? They dropped their never flying Smellfish out of their program and instead of that they push up the price for their Yarga to infinity. Who understands that? If they proceed like that they will never make it through the next year.

Ok their Bow, which suddenly looks like a copy from another brand, cost now 750 (in 12) compared toe 830 (in 12) of the Rapture2. But thats just 10% more for a real development.

What a shame that 2/3 of my kites are from Best ... They started so well.

ok ok I acknowledge, I am bored by the weather ;-), K

You're quoting prices for the yarga pro (which has the cuben leading edge and tips -- is it worth it? I dunno, we'll see). There will be a standard version which should be priced similiar to the current yarga.

Check this:

Yarga 299.99 + 230 (for 13m) = $529.99 (just kite)

From their page:
> Newly redesigned and tweaked for mid-2005 -

Elli, thats their '05 model. I was referring to their 06 model with the "legendary Cuben Leading edge". Wait a minute which was the main problem on the Smellfish - oh I remember - puffing Cuben LEs. We will see;-)

When will be wind? Tomorrow? Maybe then I feel better ... K

I read somewhere that they will be selling both, the Yarga as the allaround popular kite, the Yarga Pro as the high end model (for cuben fiber risk takers).

I think they are aware that for most people cuben is not so attractive until proven otherwise, so they keep all fabric kites as well.
