      Greetings, we've received notice of a few forum members soliciting other users for specifications on some of the Revolution kites... Please be advised, any such confirmed activity will result in immediate suspension of forum privileges. Making your own Rev style kite for artisitic purposes is admirable, but directly copying the patterns in use will not be encouraged here.

  1. What do I do in "not kite time"? I sling a guitar around...
  2. Is It Time?

    Ya, we could use a new header here. John?
  3. B2 revolution

    I'll get a look as to why that's not showing up in searches because ya, it's been discussed here. It's really a fun kite!
  4. Video tutorial FLY 4 FUN by Guido Maiocchi

    No worries Guido, I cleaned up! Thanks as always for your videos!
  5. Packed up dimensions on Reflex?

    I can measure this for you from mine if need be
  6. Super Spider! And more.

    I tend to only use the springs in low winds, myself.
  7. Super Spider! And more.

    I think the arrangement I came up with for a "mid vent" version of the kite will work out quite nicely. We'll find out shortly!
  8. Super Spider! And more.

    You know, that's an excellent idea, I'm going to pass that along. Done, mocked up a quick idea and sent it into Dave, Joe and Lolly for comments.
  9. Super Spider! And more.

    Hey all, just as a quick note, Joe graciously let me get my hands on the new VERY vented Reflex (tentatively called the Super Spider Web at this point) while we were down at Rich Comras's memorial party. This kite should be available pretty soon and damn, it flew well. It kept up to any other very vented kite out there and pull wise, it's roughly about the same amount of pull as the XTRA vent. I'll get some pictures and a better review soon but, Joe and I also talked about a mid vent Reflex as well! I sent Joe back with a few tweaks to this new kite, so, hopefully it will ready to go soon! Quite a handful of people took it for a fly and they loved it. Other things on the go over the next while, We're going to redo the Rev store site entirely over the next few weeks, and at the same time, we will roll the forum back over to the same site. An unfortunate bunch of missteps caused the separation last year and I am looking to fix this. The forum URL will change slightly to match the .com site however, that will be it as far as the forum goes. (I may undertake to dress the place up a little bit too!) thanks all!
  10. Global Rev Count.

    Ya, this is PRETTY much correct. I am sure there are a few exceptions to this but, in general, yes.
  11. Do I really need a 2-wrap frame?

    "Disturbed" sounds like the best description of that kind of wind
  12. Global Rev Count.

    Given they are currently considered Rev family, they are fine. I don't know, geeez guys, I don't (and will not) want to start policing a list of who owns what, what's legit and what's not, that just silly . I have better things to do. If it has a Rev logo on it, it's a Rev. And in some cases it may not have a logo on it. Just use some common sense
  13. Global Rev Count.

    I'm would not couch it in those terms, it's simply that it's a global Rev count. I wouldn't even call it a licensing "issue".
  14. Global Rev Count.

    No, it shouldn't ;-) Doing that opens the door to any quad line kite being included in the list. Sorry.
  15. Rev 1.5 Classic

    At this point, I am not aware of any current plans to bring a colorizer back for custom colors, but, perhaps when they start offering custom 1.5 Classics or RXs. I'll ask
