      Use of Forum

      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.

Global Rev Count.

Recommended Posts

Hi All.

Just a thought. Does anyone (at Revolution, or anyone else) have any idea just how many Revs are out there?

I'd never even SEEN one before I caught the kiting bug, but reading this forum regularly makes it obvious they're all over the planet and have been for, what, 20 years?

Anyone even hazard a guess at the total?

Fraser

============================

NOTE FROM THE MODERATOR:

For all updates, please post with this format for 100% clarity:

nickname - +# (total)

For me, it would be like this:

Kitelife - +4 (43)

If you want, you can always refer to the last updated number for you on

the list - militant accuracy isn't the goal, just makes it easier for

me. wink.gif

Thanks!

============================

Total count (updated 12/17/2014):

2,777 Revs between 317 pilots! (a mean of 8.76 per pilot)

-----------

*list is updated on occasion, the last post included in totals is #2035 in this thread, by me (bbailey49).

*total count per person should reflect kites actually in possession, and only those produced by Revolution.

*do not edit list - tended by administrators.

That's a really good question!

Well, even if they only moved 500 kites a year (very low guess I think)... That'd still be 10,000 Revs out there in the world!

Amazing. ;)

No Lagrenge - I've only got two (so far). :)

John B - 57???????!!!!! :o SURELY a load of them are supplied by your sponsors...?

Still, begs the question - who can top 57....?

30 here not counting the black and teal reg and vented 1.5 I'm hopefully getting this weekend. (if the shipping gods allow)

and if I ever get to try the B-series that could up another 2,4 or 6 depending if custom colors can be had :huh: then there is the custom progressive stack in reg and vented coming soon and seriously considering a masterpiece.

OK I think like smoking Rev should offer some sort of support group for chronic kite buyers. (or a major discount) LOL

Fraser, in all fairness... 32 of those 57 are iQuad team kites, which stay in my possession. ;)

I got my first REV, a REV I in 1990.

Over the years I have had 72 REV sails but not enough rods for all of them.

At last count I still had 42 REVs.

Details on each REV, I have or had are documented on my Web site.

There are others with more REVs. I suspect the absolute winners are Ann and Sam Ritter whom I suspect have well over a hundred REVs.

Yeah John, I went through your list a while ago. Fantastic - very impressive. "Over 100" for the Ritters? LOL When people catch this bug, they CATCH it, don't they?

You mean you don't have a B-Series, Jim? Tsk, tsk. I have two, y'know - a vented and an un-vented. I would heartily recommend them.... :lol::lol::lol:

I feel a little pathetic at this moment. I only have 2 Revs. A 1.5, and an Indoor (with a lost bungee and end cap that a have been procrastinating to replace). BUT I am hoping to get a cheaper used, vented B-Series from Ben and Lolly an WSIKF this year.(I just hope I have enought money) I'm getting all the work I can at my age (15) in a small town (Deer Park WA) to buy some more revs. It's a little tough.

57 Revs John? That's to be expected I guess. I remember when you offered me to fly one of your kites and I said, "THat's okay, I don't want to break it or anything," and you responded with, "Don't worry, I have plenty more where that came from." You weren't kidding huh?

In my first year, I only had a REV I.

In my second year I added a REV II and made a REV I sail to replace my deteriorating REV I sail.

In my third year I added a REV I SUL.

After that I became a REV collector addict.

Actually I got my first REV in 1990 and I think I have or had 73 REVs not 72.

I got my first one (a Rev 1) in 1991... Sold it because it didn't fly right.

6 months later, I realized I'd had my verticals on the front of the kite instead of the back.

Lolly and Co. gave me a Rev II near the end of 1991, and I've been flying them ever since.

80% of my Rev collection has come in the last three years. ;)

191 counted between everyone who has posted thus far... And that's just between a whopping 12 people, if I count right.

An average of 15.916 Revs per person... Now if that isn't an addiction, I don't know what is! ;)
