I couldn't agree more on that!
I also liked flysurfers for their high-tech looks.
But Flysurfers also had a lot of features no one ever used.
I seldom change WAC settings - so why not keep it At a fixed setting?
I never have flown a flysurfer at lines shorter than 21m amd honestly, I have not tried flying a 19m on extensions.
So why not simple fixed 21m lines (well, they changed that already)
The depower enhancer... Never tried it/used it.
I am happy to see That the kite has become simpler to use and simpler to service.
i am almost looking forward to exchange SPLs and pulleys on my speed 4 10m,
For instane the pulse 7 had 5 ring lines you constantly neede to adjust aside from the SPLs and pulleys!!
I also hated the ring lines in the speed 2.
I had the feeling I was paying for extras that I never used. now that the extras are gone, price stays the same
Especially with the jetflaps, a distinct flysurfer feature which must be a pain in the butt to create in the kites... Now that they are gone, the price stays the same.
A marketing strategy dictates that the newer product should never be cheaper as its predecessor.
Customers may then think that either they paid too much for earlier versions, or customers may think that the newer version is worse because its cheaper.
I honestly think it has to do more with this rather than with true cutting of costs.
The reason I still paid €1800 is that I take my hobby that seriously,
That I want to spend extra money to be the first to try new products.
This costs a lot of money, but I think it's worth my money.
Until now, every new flysurfer I bought was able to stun me, I guess the speed 4 10m will do this also...
