I just purchased a B-Pro "Forest Fade Black Center" Mid Vent. Is it me or is there a color that just doesn't look right?

See for yourself. I would appreciate any feedback.

Looks like a Forest fade to me.
I would respectfully ask for you to get the kite on the ends of some lines with the sun coming through the sail before you make your final decision.
Sitting on the ground with no ambient back light is no real basis for judging colour.
This is not a Green fade it is a Forest fade.
Designed to look something different in the air with light behind it.

Nice Bazzer,great advice.
A kite i recently purchased left me quite dissapointed when i opened the bag.Once i flew it in a Big Blue Sky,,,,,,,WAW WEE.The first impression out the bag.Near had me sending it back.I wouldnt swop it for nothing now.

Congrats on the purchase.The kite reminds me of a Blue Moon Exile i once had in those coulors,very similar.Looks like anyother kite on the deck.Apart from the coulors where quite uncommon.When it was up and flying.It looked the buisness.

ENJOY

BRIAN...

To my eyes the yellow/green in the bottom corners looks a little darker then that same color in the other panels, is this what you mean? But then again I'm blind in one eye and can't see out of the other:) Or it could be the lower corners are against the grass background and the rest of the kite is against a white background.

I just think the background is wrong!
As said, there should be a nice blue sky peppered with soft white clouds.
That would make it perfect!

Enjoy

I'll get a picture of it against a blue sky and post it this weekend.

I just felt that the orange/melon color was depicted on the web site as a primary yellow. So I was a little disappointed when I set it up for the first time. I've seen others that had primary yellow used in them and I think using primary yellow (even though it is close in color to the chartreuse(btw chartreuse is 50% yellow and 50% green)) would have made it even more attractive and kept it within the color spectrum.

Otherwise the workmanship is excellent and I love the way it flies.

I quite like it but, I'm rather biased towards green kites in general...

I can do the same on this side of the pond, I think all Revs need to be flown, regardless of what color. Email me at Iflyunlovedrevs@colorblind.netcom. :blue-music:

Back on topic, I see nothing wrong with that color scheme. Fly it with the sun behind the kite and see if it looks any better to you. Now this is coming from a guy who asked Bazzer if he would consider doing a "garbage" B Pro. Just grab whatever color for each panel and sew it together. It would end up looking sort of like a patchwork quilt, and would be completely unique.
