Ok, so the pictures aren't that great. I took both of these with my cell phone while flying. The first shot is of my regular B series and the second is of my vented B series (Kent talked me into it when I was ordering some replacement lines. :rolleyes: He's a smooth talker!).

The shot of the vented is the first time I've tried touching the kite up against any poles or anything. I normally just like to fly them. I saw a shot like this in one of the IQuad videos and thought "why not". Then I started worrying that this was not the smartest thing to do while flying my new kite but I did it anyway...

Oh yeah, the B Series DVD is incredible. I almost fell out of my chair when I watched the opening scene!

I don't even have a phone........

Is that the Black and Blue B? I think that one and the black and red ones look the best. It lloks like it is very controllable because of the pic with it above the football thing (I just can't remember the name of it at the moment)

This forum just makes me want one all the more.

Both of them are black blue and grey.

The one that is resting on the goal post is the vented. It was amazing how smooth it was even in a reasonable breeze.

I forgot to mention that it was a little chilly yesterday. I was quite happy that I had gloves in my truck. After about 15 minutes of flying I landed the kite and ran for my gloves.

After that it was Talking Heads, Jimi Hendrix and kite flying. I came home smiling!

I find that I preferr the Vented myself. Much smoother in gusty conditions. In the doldrums here at the moment, going through my lines resleeving and equalising them.

The one line I used in Blackheath was a good inch longer than the others John. All sorted now. Made a 20 foot set up yesterday, going to make a 30 and maybe 40 up using some of the older sets I have and cutting the worn sections out. Oh yes and making sure it is BLACK on the bottom sleeve.

Hi Guys,
I am new here but I am not new to Revolution kites, been flying since 2003, love almost all the Rev kites but the best so far are my 2 REV 1.5 SLEs, I am from Malaysia and we have quite a following fliers flying Rev kites as well.
Just ordered my Barresi Signature Series and can't wait for it to fly, my friend had one, so far the only Barresi kite in Malaysia.
He is another Rev kites collector, a Super Blast, a 1.5SLE, a Rev 2, a Shockwave, an Indoor Rev and lastly the Barresi Series.
Keep up the good work.
