Jex,
Good first post, congrats on getting your first Rev, your flying has taken on a whole new direction now. :) As has been said there is a Rev for every occasion and for every mood the flyer is in. Here is my two cents for your consideration. You like your 1.5, consider a B Series vented, you can use the UL or SUL frame in your 1.5 for low winds, and when you get that 5 mph or so wind I think you might love the vented, very sweet precision flyer. I would also suggest as an earlier post, if you are interested in the Blast, fly before you buy. It's a great REV but maybe not the second in your bag, good power kite, and all around flyer. Now if you like speed, and quickness there are Revs for that, try a Supersonic. Supersonic makes my leading edge rattle :D It could be described as flying a guided missle and yes it will trick it's way right into your heart, awesome axles, mach one slides that will make a crowd of seagulls applaud.
Get Quad Kit to write you some notes on how to make your collection grow. Put a picture of your girl in your kite bag and hit the flying field. I know you'll enjoy whatever you get, good flying to you, Dave

Hi Fourplay, not sure that you get the added spars with the Vented B. I think it comes with the 4 wrap. You get the 2 AND 3 with the non vented B.

I THINK that is right. Of course you could ask for ALL the spars.

Far as I know, the B-Series STD comes with 2 & 3 wrap... The B-Series VTD with the 4 wrap frame. ;)

Of course, the idea is that having both kites will give you ideal equipment for ANY wind conditions.

Jex,
Last time I posted to you I said I had ordered a SUL and would let you know. Well I have 4 long days of flying it under the belt now and can say it was a great purchase. It is so much fun to fly on days I would have gone home. I feel like I am cheating the wind gods when that thing takes off and does tricks. After reading the other post I would think one advantage to the SUL is fly right out of the bag getting no special or cut down spars.
I guess I as you would also have the options of trading spars leading edges etc with the 1.5. I found that there was plenty of overlap in the performance of the two kites and no need to do that. I will probably try it later because I can. Be sure to post your decision. I am sure you will like what ever you get.

Thanks Baloo for the frame info, I only have the STD B-Series in red. I have not ordered the vented B as my wife got me a new vented 1.5 for Christmas. Sorry to Jex for the misinformation, best regards to all, Dave

First of all - I really appreciate all of your input !!! :)

Here is what I have decided to do:
  • I called Rev to order a Rev 2. The Rev 2 that I ordered will come with a 2-wrap leading edge and with 2-wrap vertical spars. I also ordered the 3-wrap leading edge for it.
  • This Thursday or Friday I will purchase a Rev 1.5 Baressi series from my local kite store. (non-vented version)
  • I will not order a Blast at this time. I need to fly one first.
So...this all started with, "What should my next Rev be?"
It turned into...purchasing two more Rev kites. :blink:

Nineteen more and I can tie our friend with that holds the "22 Rev record." :lol:

Thank you for sharing your experience. I am very excited to try the Baressi Rev with the SUL spars. I pick the Baressi up this week!!!

Okay... Serious count?

I'll do my best:
  • 2 blue B-Series (1 vent / 1 standard - four more on the way in blue fade)
  • 1 purple B-Series prototype w//out signature or iQuad logo
  • 8 custom iQuad SLE standards (black primary color)
  • 8 custom iQuad SLE standards (white primary color)
  • 8 custom iQuad SLE vented (black primary color)
  • 8 custom iQuad Indoor Revs
  • 1 custom Rev I, originally made for Team High Performance
  • 1 Neos Omega
  • 1 Ron Gibian masterpiece 1.5
  • 1 Randy Tom masterpiece 1.5
  • 2 Barry Poulter masterpiece I's (prototypes, one is vented)
  • 3 custom blue fade Rev I's (one is vented)
  • 1 custom blue fade Rev II
  • 1 red basic Rev II
  • 1 old graphic Rev I SUL
  • 2 red/white Rev I's (one is vented)
  • 1 Supersonic
That's 50, if my math is right... 54 once my blue fade B-Series arrive. :D

Surely I'm forgetting some, but you get the idea!

Wow, just as I thought, you got me beat!
I have had 64(73), but only have 45 now of which 3 are on more or less permanent loan.
So that puts me at 42.
