Bob,

You calling me a few bricks shy is like Jessica Simpson thinking she has a real shot at an acedemic scholorship.

Personal perception versus reality. Now you and the Proactiv acne girl go think smart thoughts...

I was kinda afraid this would happen

http://www.sportsstuff.com/news/07-13-06/index.shtml

As a kite tube owner, It's been my experience that proper inflation and driver caution make it no more dangerous than some of our other towed pursuits. After a recall, though, I'm thinking that a huge liability exists for anyone still pulling one around. Anyone with a kite tube thinking of keeping it anyway?

Ten of us went in on it when we bought it, now only three of us will ride it anymore after the rest have had some pretty bad falls. We are learning and have had some pretty good days on it, but it can get unpredictable pretty darn fast. I'm 50/50 on keeping it. Looks like you can trade it in for as many as 3 other tube like products !

BEEF CALLED IT = KITE TUBE OFF THE MARKET

UMP, how about a poll - If I had a Kite Tube, I would:

>keep on flyin
>Call those capitalist pigs at Wego profiting from my peril and demand my money back
>sell the kite tube on TMC to an unsuspecting newbie

etc

I haven't decided. I'm not worried about the liability, or even hurting anyone (at least not any more worried than I am pulling hydrofoilers, wakeboarders or skiers), but fewer and fewer people want to ride it having seen all of the "AAAAHHHHH!!!!!!" news reports, plus the thing is kind of a bugger to store anywhere. OTOH, it is a lot of fun. I'd be more inclined, I guess, if one of the options were a Big Mable, instead of either the Mable or the Super Mable...

What to do, what to do......?

bigmac
07-13-2006, 02:04 PM
I wonder how fast one would have to get going to get the Super Mable flying...? It's one of the replacement options.

I did trade in my Kite Tube for a Super Mabel. I've found that at 58 mph it will fly almost as high as the Kite Tube...

It's all the driver's fault;an unskilled driver, speed and the Wego don't mix very well.
