My first humble impressions are that this is the best performing Rev 1.5 that I now have. Now, my first flight was in steady 7-mph winds, about ideal for this kite. But I don't think the winds were all of it. In looking the kite over, I've tried to figure out why it performs so well with such stability and control. I've come to the conclusion that it's one of four things:
1. All cloth sail
2. 3-wrap narrow leading edge
3. Vertical sail "channels"
4. My imagination

Don't forget #5... A little rubbing went into each one, a little Barresi stimulation, if you will.

Just kidding!! LOL

You hit it pretty much right on the head Doug... Items 1-3 are the main factors at work.

We had the same responses from people who flew the B-Series in Texas this past weekend.

I've watched him doing this... :unsure:

And yes, having now had a great five days in Texas with John on this bad boy, I'll have some more comments on it soon, but, i'm convinced its the best 1.5 I've ever flown. As Doug points out, I think its channeling myself, I've flown extensively on all cloth 1.5s, with the 3 wrap leading edges all last year but, this one? Its a step above.

The iQuad logo makes me all tingley too. ;)

Hey Monks, what is the effect of the tip weights? Is that why your kite is on the ground??? ;)

Ya, mine is a non standard colour at this point, but, I sure like it.

I didn't do much with the weights this weekend, I was having too much fun flying but, the effect is to help power it thru axels and tricks like that. Ill be trying more with that later though I can say it feels pretty meaty with 4 grams on each tip and a 4 wrap frame.

Hi,

Just like to say I love the look of the new "Barresi Signature Series"
One question is there or are there any plans to have a vented version, as I would like to order both at same time, :D being in the UK.

Thanks,
Dave.

Take a look at the photos on the Kitelife web site taken at the KTAI.
There was a vented blue JB.

Oh yes, they're around... Not very many made yet, but tell your shop to order them from Rev. ;)

They were on the wholesale list at KTAI.

I just got off the phone with Lolly at Rev and our shipment of standards and a couple vented's should be here any day. A vented version of the B-series has always been in the plans. Talking with John, the b-series was designed so that the vents would not change the looks of the original design (hence the dual vertical panels on each side of the kite). Rev has been busy putting together the standards first because those are the main requests from the shops, they are building a few vented's as well but not as many as the standards for obvious reasons. I am told that they should have all colors in both the standard and vented available within the next couple weeks and all of the orders should be completed. We have already placed our second order for the B-series as we only have a couple of the standards left.

I flew John's vented in Texas and it was suuuuuperb though I didn't get to try the best combination of a 2 wrap frame and the vented sail yet. Soon, soon, spring is coming.

Will the new Baressi series be available in sail only for those of us with several frame sets already?

I also flew John B's JB Sig series today. The sail is just breaking in for the best flying. The wind was super light and it was one of the very few REVs that could fly. The others were No-Winds or 1.5 with No-wind rods. John flies with a different handle setting from me, thus I had to make my adjustments. Then it really flew super nice. As you can see from one of the pictures, it axels very flat, which is rare for a quad.
