    I just figured I would pass along this cheap somewhat protective container I bought at My local Hobby Lobby, $9.99. It's called a "expandable artwork storage tube" in the store, but fits one rev and extra set of rods with room to spare, and two revs in bags snug but still fits easily. Handles don't fit, but maybe another project can fix that. 3 1/4 diameter and 38' easy on length. I think product description says 37', buts its a little bigger.

    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?

    I usually won't recommend going with different strength lines on the tops and bottoms of the Blast series kites (or any Revolutions for that matter). This works good for normal foil style power kites as you never have the same amount of tension on the trailing lines as you do on the leading edge lines but the Blast, 2/4 and the 4/8 are quite different than normal foils. When powered up hard you will have just as much or even more tension on the lower lines as you do on the upper lines so going with a lighter weight line on the lowers could invite a catastrophic line failure under stronger wind conditions which could result in a damaged or destroyed kite. The Blast series kites are shipped with all four lines of equal weight, 150# minimum is supplied on the Blast and on the 2/4 with 200# recommended for power flying and 300# test or more for the 4/8. If you are never going to be flying these kites in the upper wind ranges where they can produce some pretty serious power (10 mph and up) then you will not need the stronger weight lines and 100# line will probably work just fine for you....except on that 4/8, that thing is a beast even in lighter winds! LOL Under power it would be fairly easy to snap 100# lines on the Blast and the 2/4 and I wouldn't even bother trying them on the 4/8. Hope this helps.

    May I recommend you consider running an "anti-snag" trick-line all the way around the circumference of any of the Speed Series sail, thru the end-cap and following the parameter closely then add tons of DOWN to your handle tuning. This will help slow the kite down and make it into a flick-flak monster machine this is much tougher to snag a flying line. I don't use sleeving either, it's just another spot where you can catch-up on a snag. I use 90 pound LPG unless is really whistling outside or if I'm flying the Blast. Notice the orange hi-test bridle line (100#) at the edge?, see how it connects at the center, so each wing can still move independently?
