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!! :)

They were in the Revolution catalogs from the time. However very few kite shops stocked the vented REVs. Even today not all kite shops stock the vented versions. It all depends on the general demand of the customer whether they are stocked or not.

Of the classic colors not yet listed I have a raspberry with black tips. Also a rainbow blue lime (aquaORteal it leans towards green unsure of exact color) with pink center black logo.

I like the "razzberry" spelling.

Hi All,

 

Had to sign up just to post.

Here is my poor old 1990 Rev II yellow and blue tips. blue_inlove.gif

Purchased from the kite shop near the aquarium at the base of Diamond Head in Hawaii.

It was my first quad, and I have moved on to buggies and power kites mostly now.

But the Rev was used a hell of a lot in it's early years, to the extent that it is now quite soft and supple, not really what you want from a kite.

Still have the original hand cut plywood winder, which is used for my Rev lines (I also got a B Series a few years ago).

Had to sew up the mesh to the leading edge in patches.

And only ever had one broken spar, considering how much of a beating it's taken, that's dam good.

So is the new B2 just like the Rev II, but only better?

 

Cheers, Nigel

Welcome Nigel,
Great on ya to sign up.....
I wouldn't say "better", just different...but to be confusing it is better in a way.
I've never tried a B2 but I do notice a difference in flying a 1.5 vs a B1.5......more crisper for lack of a better term, so I'm imagining the same except a bit quicker... Others can explain better but the downward panels plus the deeper center panel do make a difference....
However I'm more partial to a Sedgwick style Rev 2 (as well as the 1's!!! See pix in link below.) I just like the sail/panel layout better. I wish they made a Sedg 1.5!!!!
For example....but different sizes here....I have a Zen that is real nice but I also have a Robertshaw 1, which to me is more nice and it is somewhat based on the Sedg style.....
They all are good!!!!
