  1. worst kite flying day EVER

    I really do feel for you having the tear. I fly often, and to date I have had no problem with any of my Rev kites or lines. I fly all my kites well within it's wind range reducing the chances on any rips and most importantly I avoid gusty winds. If the winds happen to be gusty within the wind range, I would consider using my vented 1.5 Rev kites are well made and if looked after should last you a long time. As for snapping rods, I have yet to snap one, then again I do all my spins well above ground, avoiding the chance of hitting the outer LE which would likely snap in this event. I tend to play safe rather than be sorry, which in turn rewards me with countless hours of fun with little chance of any disasterous mishap. At least if something does happen, I can say I tried my best to avoid it. If money was no obect, or I was sponsored, I would certainly take more risks and would probably have a few destroyed kites by now, but unfortunatly that is not the case, so I treat my kites with utmost care. Treat your Rev with Love and respect and you will be well rewarded with years of fun and exhiliration. Best Winds
  2. Beginner on a Rev here

    The same Rev I bought back in August of last year, my very 1st Revolution kite - Red, White and Black("Midnight') I ordered mine with all cloth sail (no mylar) though. It's a FANTASTIC kite and got me totally hooked on Revs. I now have the following Rev kites in my bag acquired over just 7 months: 1st. Rev - 1.5 SLE "midnight" all sail 2nd. Rev - 1.5 vented custom.- Black, Purple and Aqua (my personal favorite) 3rd. Rev - 1 Sedgewick "Cool" 4th. Rev - Supersonic - Gold, Rasberry and Blue 5th. Rev - 1.5 SUL custom rainbow 6th. Rev - Supersonic vented - New assemetrical Gold/Black - (on order due to arrive 1st. week in May) Wishlist: Rev Blast Rev Baressi series Rev Masterpiece Rev Bag Your journey into the exhilirating world of Revolution kites has just begun. BE WARNED!!, unless you get your spouse involved (if you happen to have one), your relationship WILL be put to the test - Been there, done that and bought the T-Shirt, which I still wear to this day

  7. How to improve the fly, when you are new

    The B series is on my wish list for the fall
  8. San Diego, Mission Bay mini JB Rev meetup

    I'm possitive the kite looks absolutely stunning in flight. Hell it looks stunning no matter what it's doing antman you have in my opinion, one of the most gorgeous customs out there and definitely something to be over the moon about, which I know you are That would be one kite I would have on display between flights and not kept tucked away in my bag. Somewhere, where everyone could see it. As I mentioned to Ben, as I much as I would love to own one, my Rev collection is not yet complete, and I can purchase 2 to 3 Revs for the price of one custom and the luxury of owning a custom is just a little too self indulgent in my situation. I just have to be realistic. Trust me when I say to purchase just one Rev, I have to make a lot of sacrifices, ALL well worth it though!
  9. Different handles

    If I have anything spare, I'm always willing to share, however in this case, I will still need them, as I am trying my darndest up here to attract people to this exciting sport and hopefuly get someone to fly with. I have been actively trying for 8 months now, even advertising in local publications, still without success. Lets just say that kiting up here is about as popular as skydiving WITHOUT a parachute - Not very popular! That been said, it has not dampened my enthusiasm, and I continue to do my very best to attract others to the sport. If I haven't been successful within the next couple of months, I will reconsider how's that? As for my beautiful custom kevlar handles (a VERY GENEROUS gift from BEN - Thanks again Ben ) ...... I'm ONLY going to be using them, I just LOVE them

    An ALL white sail will look very cool , since the logo is also white

    YEP!, especially the horse and eyes, my personal favorites
  13. Kite Lights

    White would be the best reflective color and any light color. Dark colors absorb a lot of light and not as effective. The white is also UV sensative, so using mini blacklights are also a possibilty. Lights don't always have to be attached to the kite itself either. If they are light enough, they could also be attached to the bridle. I'm going to be doing a lot of experimenting with lights this summer.
  14. Vented Revs, with UL frames...

    The vented 1.5 was my favorite to fly untill I got my SUL. They are both fantastic, hell so is my 1.5 SLE.
