The Rev II has a 2 part leading edge; approximately 39" long, including ferrule. It would take the same amount of room as the Rev I.


Thanks Steve... was just about to modify my Rev bag so that it fits my 2~4 ... might wait now and see what effect those rods have....

Maybe I might have to join sailor and 'double bag it'

I find with the prog stack, a little more care is needed when putting together and breaking down.Thats if ya want to tale it apart.

Nice kite though,loves a sweet 5mph.

pc BRIAN,



Well that would explain why you look like just a kid. I did 32 in a 30 today and you didn't catch me! Ha Ha!

Why does it need more care Bri? Is there some potential for breakage/ tangles or something?

Jonesey you are thinking too high tech :blue_wink:
If you are lucky, they still plod around on bicycles (round these parts).

Personally I think 44 kites is a liability not to mention one monster stack. :kid_smartass:

EVENING ALL, :) [you have to be of a certain age for that Bobbies intro.

I find the stack of 1.5s is so easy to fold away and build up.The prog has diffrent spar lengths that break down in diffrent place,so folding away needs a little more attention.Especially in a blow.The rev 1s a long leading edge,so i fold the 1.5 into it and remove the rev 2 spars.Then roll it up
Just my way of doing it.How the heck the guys at rev managed to get it to me without a crease is beyond me.Ive never managed to get it back the same.May be a good idea Jonsey to take note how they pack it.Then post the details.

Yes,my addiction is Just About Correct,give or take one or two either way.

I NEED A WINGS REV,,,,,It hurts,,,,,

I think you maybe getting confused with Bristol, or maybe Rhyl. No Rhyl is worse than that.

The London folk have still be known to enjoy Pie and mash.

Wot are northern pies Bri?

That was such a good quote it deserved quoting twice! ROTFPMPL

PUKKA PIES - now there the thing. Our chippy at home used to do them, but I hadn't had one for years. Now they sell them in morrisons down here too! Like nectar in a pastry crust. :gathering: :chef: They also do Mumtaz lassi - Bradford the home of the balti!

The Scottish don't have pies. Its a bit like Ireland not having snakes because St Pat chased them all away. In Scotland the pies were all eaten by St Gorilla

Don't have pies??!!!! Don't tell Sparky but even as a Southern Softie I think a traditional Scottish Pie is one of my favourites....

Anyway back on Topic... When my Progressive arrives stack and I fold it in the suggested way ...... how many pies will there be room for in my rev bag? ... I feel a new competition coming on ....... stand by ;)

Love the Gorilla link Sailor,class.Did it eat them all or did it have help,Mmm,Fraser would know i bet.

Now,without the old google box doin the work.How or why,is a pie called a PIe.Ile tell thi.

Magpies,,,,,yep,its true.Because Magpies,gather all manner of bits and bobs,thats what a pie was originally made of.NO,not The Magpie,the bits of food or left overs in the Pantry,,,meat,potatoes,etc,etc that could be found and cooked and placed in a pastry case,,,it was said to be like a Magpie when makeing the meal,Hence,Magpie PIE

Please,if your ever on the 1000,000 question and you get this as your question,remember me.

I have a couple different stacks of rev's so I can share how I do it. I keep all of my stacks together, train lines and all. This is the easiest way to get them out and set them up which can take a bit especially if the wind's blowing. My 8 stack of 1.5's is the most difficult. Because I have different frames in the stack it takes a little bit to keep them separated. I put a stripe of paint on the very ends of each set of rods in different colors so I can tell them apart easily. Red is heavy rods (6 wraps), yellow is the Rev Equip'd (4 wrap) and the green is the ultra lights (3 wrap). First I lay all 8 kites on top of each other from back kite to front kite. I reach through the kites and remove all the verticals. Then I start with the first kite and break down the leading edge. When I break it down I slide the verticals back inside of the ends of the leading edge to keep the frames together. I fold the ends over normally like a single kite. Because the stacking lines are a tad bit shorter it pulls slightly on the second kite. No problem just leave the folded over kite kinda goofy and break down the second leading edge. Fold the second leading edge inside and under the first kite which allows you to straighten up the first one, leaving the second one kinda goofy cuz of the thrid....repeat, repeat..etc...

When all the kites are broken down and folded on top of each other neatly, I start with the back kite and begin rolling up all 8 kites together into one giant burrito roll rev. :) I have a large bag that all the kites fit into. If you don't have a larger bag you can substitute by purchasing one of those aluminum fold up lawn chairs that you get from the sporting goods outlets for a cheap price. It is usually a heavy duty canvas type bag with a nice heavy draw string on top. Works great! Usually the chairs will break from time to time so if you know of someone who has a couple of these types of chairs ask for the bag if one gets ready to be trashed.

For my Rev II stacks, they are simple, just break the leading edges down and fold them in half, roll them up.

For my progressive stacks - same as the 8 stack but the rev II is slid to one side because of the 2 piece leading edge. I will probably convert it over to the new 3 piece LE's soon.

Hope that helps, works fer me, :)

I do the same with my progressive (mainly because that's how Kent said to do it!) except I take the frame out of the 2 entirely being that its a 2 piece leading edge .. hadn't thought of sliding it over.. spoils the symmetry! ... dI wonder if the 3 piece will make this easier ?? Would love to hear someone who has one... tried to order one today but only available as complete kites so far over here ... and I really dont need another new kite this week..do I? ;)
