Ha, nice one Jim... I've just shipped you a trout, unrefrigerated, via snail mail. ;)

Walt, got more SLE spars than I'll ever know what to do with... Maybe a custom tent?

Bart, I remember that kite well, same one you were flying when we met in Swift Current. :D

Yup, then sold it to have enough cash to buy that vented B-Series. I regret selling it it now, of course, but am still glad that I did invest in that first B-Series. In the end I probably was able to do more learing with it then what I could with the REV I. It seemed more uncontrollable for me than the B does. Just would have been nice to still have now. I might have been able to get my friend flying it instead of switching to a foil.

Maybe we'll surprise you and come out with something new to replace that old Rev I later in the year. ;)

John, it might have just the thing for all those SLE's, I am working on a little project with some Spanish friends of mine to see if we can't make some nice banners to fit those rods. We aim to also have them able to hang from the arena tape. Just working on a few minor details. I am more than chuffed with the ones we tested for The Flying Squad.

Sorry, back on topic now.

hi Friends,

I have the Yellow - Red Version. What kind of Fabric is it made of ?

this Historical Revīs are very difficult to get, here in Germany.
so I want to build another one for myself with original Fabric, rodīs, Caps. Rodīs (with the original Metal connects) and the old Alu Caps are in my collection.

Matthias,
The original material is spinnaker nylon. I have no idea who the manufacturers are that were used by Revolution at that time. For the original metal caps, you would have a problem finding them as they have not been made for about 18 years. The caps could be hand made. They consist of three pieces. An aluminum tube, a rubber end cap and some type of spongy rubber on the inside to cushion the rod. The rubber items you can probably acquire from "Gummi Sahlberg" in Munich. The attaching clip for the lines is called a hog clip. It is used for upholstery work in the USA. I don't know of there them existing in Germany.
For the spinnaker nylon there are a number of kite shops in Germany that sell it, though the number has reduced dramatically in recent years. The main problem is that it will be quite difficult to duplicate the original, despite the fact that it may appear easy.
If you want an original, watch eBay. They occasionally show up all over the world. In particular watch the UK eBay.

Here's a stack being flown by Lee Sedgwick (I'm pretty sure) at Grand Haven, MI in May of 1990. (pic 1)

My blue/yellow has the arched Logo and a description of the rods below and to the right. Also has a tag on the back of one of the yellow tips. (pics 2 & 3) I bought this in Traverse City, MI in the summer of 1989.

Did you ever consider buying a sail only? Contact Revolution directly and see what they say. They just might be able to find an older sail for you.
