Can see most fliers here prefer the 1.5 SLE vented or not vented overall, my favourite Revs will be the 1.5SLE, but have yet to try out the B-Series soon.
I even went buggying flying just an 1.5 and when I stacked another, all hell broke loose, I was cruising down the Kuantan Baserah beach, it was awesome, winds started in the morning and picking till all day and night, we totally forgotten to have our lunch till dinner at 8pm.
Cheers,
chris

Thats a common problem Chris. I've noticed many people forget to eat ,drink or put on sunscreen when they start flying. It's just tough to stop!

well I have only flown a rev 1 and a rev 2, so I can consider them both favourites for different reasons. the rev 1 for moderate winds and precision, the rev 2 for a bit of fun in high winds, it's just bonkers.

I have to say, I can fly my indoor most anywhere so my indoor even with screwed together spine (does the indoor have a spine in it??) oh the flyer is sopoused to, YEAH, so I haven't spent enough time on B series to get spoiled, but I WILL so when outdoors that is the kite I'm sure, but as far as art goes that's a preference so the Masterpice series, I HAVE TO SAY, you need them ALLL, REVOLUTION is doing it right!!! for 20 years now, 2008, well, in about 17 days officially (I THINK) so thats like choosing your favorite children thats an unfair ??? and with the internet everyone can compare even me! If I can get my passwords correct???? SO THANKS REV and how many KITE COMPANIES are still in bussiness in USA only a few hard core so hurray for them sticking it out and putting up with us spoiled rotten american flyers who want it all right now our own little way cause we have it all figured out the new stuff is great and the evolution of the revolution is just AWESOME,THANKS REV and ALL Involved . I have been flying REV's for 13 years I've seen alot of Rev's, custom different things come and go, through the Northeast anyway (Big REV country)I've been to alot of festivals across the good ole US of A so I can speak of what my eyes have seen and I like this forum thing I can't get enough,
Thank's, REVOLUTION, BEN LOLLY, JOE, DAVE,and JOHN BARRESI, YOUR THE MAN!!!
Sincerely,
Down but not out

The 1.5 is a good all around kite but for the side of myself that wants a challenge to stay in control it's the Shockwave.

No Barresi Series in there? *pout*

It's gotta be the Beeeeeee-series vented for me.

A marvelous piece of engineering that makes me want to learn with a smile on my face rather than being dragged around looking scared! It's that much of a contrast. Thankyou.
1 of the 47.

I will have to go with the 1.5 also because of inventory of only 1.5 and 2.
Have not had the opportunity to try the B series.

I need borrow one of each Rev style for about a year . Only then will I know the best for sure.
Yeah , that will happen.

Wait a minute!!!!!!

Are we borrowing kites for fun and comparison or starting a business?

Probably working our way off topic

Since noone has jumped in to lend us a kite for a year or just tell us we are crazyPosted Image, I guess we will just have to go broke and buy our own kites like everyone else.
