What we like:
The Best TS is the upgraded 2012 version of the 2011 Best Taboo. They took everything that we liked about the Taboo, added a lot of power and kite stability and turned this kite into a user friendly high performance kiteboarding kite. This is a sick kite for the intermediate to advanced kiteboarder.
When you get your first ride on the TS you smile. It turns fast, pulls hard, goes up wind and boosts to the moon. It's also really fun in the waves and we were surprised by the water relaunch. Even the 17m relaunches in light breeze which was a shock to the REAL Coaches.
The TS has a new updated marterial, construction and one pump system that will make this kite take abuse and last you a long time. Best has made huge improvements in their construction to compete at the top level with out all the marketing hype and cost.
What we don't like:
We have heard feedback that the TS needs to be really well inflated to get the best performance out of it. If you try to take a short cut and go out without putting enough air in the kite you may find that the kite doesn't hold it's structure when under heavy load (kite loops etc...). Don't worry though, so long as you inflate it properly - you're in for some amazing sessions!
Why you want the 2012 Best TS:
REAL 100% supports the Best TS as a kite that most ride once and love. You will be stoked with the performance and reliability of this kite.
