Sorry, meant to get back to you on the colours for my Classic.

Now I have looked at it again in the flesh it looks to me like Green and Pink.

However, Una HWSBO tells me it is Turquoise and Magenta if that makes sense.

I am guessing it might be what is called a teal-pink

This is the 1st time I heard of a REV II with white logo. They must look nice on dark backgrounds.

The Rev II was produced in the single color with curved logo from 1990 through 1996. There were some with the straight logo in 1997, however it is unknown if they were sold.
The Rev II Classic was produced from 1990 to 1996. It has a center panel and then the two tip panels.
The REV II Rainbow(known as the Sedgwick panel layout) was produced from 1991 to 1996 then again from about 2003 to 2010 and maybe this year.
Te REV II Neo-Classic was only produced in 1997.

I hope this helps.

The photo I saw he was flying three kites all matching colors, a 1 and two 2's . It was on his facebook but he has gone missing from my page. I've been trying to convince him to sell them to me, but alas...

Both Roger and Janice Maddy have also disappeared from my friends on Facebook. I presume they have closed their Facebook accounts.

Checked out the logo- Straight across on pink solid sail!! So that would put it around 1997!!??:wacko: Sounds about right, I bought it for my son when Rev 1s were way too big for him!!!:huh: The Rev 2 was small enough for him to handle at that age and what was available at that time!! There weren't any vented kites back then!! :angry: He flew it at WSIKF this summer, got a race frame for it and is it a lot of fun when the wind is up!!:)

That would be the first straight logo single color REV II that I have verified made it on the market. I am presuming there were a few more.
As for vented, the Rev 1.5 and REV II Rainbow were both available in 1996. I won a number of comps with REV 1.5 vented in 1996, which is the year I won the European Championships. I don't have it any more but I do have a REV II vented from 1996 with the curved logo.

Nice to know there were vented kites available, just not in the area we got all our kites from!!:) My boy was small and the size was perfect for him! Now he's all growed up and can handle any of the sizes!! :)
