I've got a few rev's from a few years ago - love them. Looking to buy a new Rev II for travel but can't find anything online that carries just the kite with good color selection and prices.

Any suggestions?

Not sure if this topic belongs in the "From Rev" part of the forum but.

Midwest Kites
http://www.midwestkites.com
is another great site.

Lighten Up Kites
http://www.lightenup...Kites-quad.html


Check out some of the kitelife sponsors.
Check out Kiting magazine for a list of kiteshops.

I am sure if you found a store to buy a kite from and needed to know if anyone has dealt with them, the forum is a good place to find out.

The Kite Shoppe, Kite Connection and Wind of Change are the top 3 in my book. I've had outstanding customer service and invaluable advice from each of them. You could always order through Revolution directly ofcourse...

Not sure where you are. If in the uk Kiteworld is good. If in USA kite connection has my vote, although the other retailers mentioned also have a very good reputation. Remember that the cheapest is not always the best value.

I need to second that! Buying my first Rev online from a less than stellar source was an awful experience.

Can you drop us a line to say where you are?

However any of the above would be a good starting point.

Oh and welcome to posting by the way. I see you have been a mamber for a while.

Give me a call at our shop anytime, or drop us an e-mail. We have all Rev's in stock in all models and can package it in any configuration you want. We can also swap out frames for you for any Rev as we stock all available frames for all models.

I would also suggest looking towards your local shop. Although we do our best to provide the best possible customer service, it is hard to beat someone who is right down the street from you that knows the area and wind conditions or can pull a rod off the rack or even cannibalize a kite so you can head out on Friday night to fly (or at least they should). That kind of face to face service is hard to compete with and is always better than saving a couple dollars on the final price.

Try to support your local shops, even if the price is a tad higher than you can find online. This is what helps our industry grow and in the end, will help all of us. I am pretty sure that if you give your local shop a chance, they can be pretty competitive on the pricing too. :)

Kent is a wise man, indeed, Jim. Don't know where you're located, but Flying Smiles Kites is in North Carolina and we've also got a complete line of Revs (and accessories). We're a 'brick and mortar' location that opened last year specifically to serve Rev flyers as well as Dualies. (Sometime this year we'll have the website completely filled, but we started with Revs.)

We do back our products - we're active flyers too! :sign_kitelife: and nothing is more frustrating than being sold a bill of goods :kid_cussing: ...

Give us a call (252-453-8442) or contact us by email (cath@FlyingSmilesKites.com) if you still need help.

BTW, the dealers mentioned already have outstanding reputations from everything I've heard, just not on the east coast, so I had to open my own 'conveniently' located store B)
