2012 Slingshot Rally 12M - RTF - $475

Post by ShiftyWinds » Mon Jun 20, 2016 12:58 pm

Selling my 12M Slingshot Rally, including the bar and lines. This is the 2012 model which is the most sought after year of the Rally's. This is an amazing surf kite or perfect for the lighter winds (only has three struts). With an extra 6M or 9M line extension, this will still be in the sky when everyone else's kites are on the ground.

The kite is in great condition and I was hard pressed to find any marks on any of the canvas. The leading edge is also in excellent condition and I was only able to find some very light scuff marks on one or two places (see pic #6). Both sides of the kite where the lettering shows '12M Slingshot', the white is a little dirty (see pic #7).

The kite accidentally caught a bush during landing and incurred two clean cuts. Both were professionally repaired at a kite shop. You can see the repairs on the outside of the kite, but from the underneath side, it's completely unnoticeable. The repair in NO way effects the flight. It flies the same as the day it was purchased.

The bar is decent and shows some wear, but still has plenty of life left. The depower cord shows very little wear. The lines are nice and clean. The pigtails show some color bleeding, but the bridle doesn't show any wear.

Included is the original backpack. Asking $475!

My apologies Rorke, I must have missed your email as I can't find it in my inbox. I'm temporarily suspending this sale as I'm heavily considering keeping the kite. I'll let you know if I change my mind. I may have some other Rally's to sell, so stay tuned!

How about this...
I offer $375 for it.
That is full price less the "no hard feelings" factor for me getting excited.

Basically, for the small fee of $100, you get educated on what is and is not proper, kosher, decent, stand up, etc.

What is the next step?

Wow, you really want this don't you? Wind is picking up this fall and soon you won't need it. I really don't want to sell it right now, but you are making it harder for me to say no. But I love this kite!

Shifty,

You backed off selling the kite when Rorke was so stoked to get it, he's been looking awhile... and now you're entertaining the idea of selling it to him for more$$... you still dangling the carrot...WTF?

I may be wrong but didn't you lose a board shortly after you pulled the kite from Rorke's anxious hands? Gain some perspective buddy, this is a tight kiting community....

Sorry, I didn't mean to be misleading. I have no intent on selling this kite at this time. He just keeps coming back and posting on occasion to push me, and it makes me feel bad. Also I didn't mean I would sell it for more money either. I meant it was getting harder to say no because he keeps posting here. And just to clarify, when I am ready to sell this kite, Rorke will get first dibs...at the original asking price. Sorry Rorke, but at this time the sale is over.
