Allen what would you pay for an AzizA now.... Or a pristine Betancourt?
Well, AzizA's are rare, at least on this side of the pond. But there is no demand to drive up the price.
Prices on Betancourt kites bottomed out a few years ago. No demand. The collector status waned as everyone who wanted nice ones has them. There is very little demand from actual flyers because PBSKs are so far removed from how most people like kites to behave. Nowadays nice PBSKs go unsold for months until the right
buyer comes along.
I'm often the "buyer", but I haven't paid a lot for a PBSK in many years.
