Lolly doesn't have a picture of the Raspberry/Gold/Black indoor Rev. I forgot to ask if they've sold one in that color combination.

Does anybody on the forum have a picture that they can share?

Thanks,
Tom

That's what my old one was, I can't find a picture, but it looks like melnsct beat me to it anyway. I still prefer my red and black though ;)

Thank you Melanie! Technical minded folks can't ever have enough data ... and they can't ever make up their minds on non-function things like colors. I'll be stewing over the three choices all the way till Christmas.

Thanks again,
Tom

Watty,

See, there you go muddying up the waters. I remember guys like you on the play ground ... "My old thing is like what you're dreaming about ... but, I really like my new custom (you cant have one) thing."

Thanks for the smile this morning. I'll update you when it's ordered ... with only three choices, it shouldn't take more than a couple of months to decide.

Cheers,
Tom

Mel,

Tell Scott I stumbled onto his YouTube video while looking for different color combos for the indoor kite. When I first clicked on it, I thought it was another of Scott Weider's many videos. Partway into the video, I noticed the pony tail ... that's not Scott W. ... what's going on ... then I noticed the title. You hubby's flying looked good.

Cheers,
Tom

With a lot of thought and some help from Lolly, I ended up with a custom color combo ... blue fade!! Actually, Lolly wasn't a lot of help since she kept expanding the choices ... hot fade, cool fade, purple fade, green fade, one half hot and the other cool???

So, I stayed away from talking to Lolly for a month and wrapped my mind around a blue fade. When I called her to order the kite, she started in again ... what colors do you want in the blue fade? Do you want to start with a dark blue, medium blue or light blue? Damn, I grew up with an eight color crayon box ... blue is blue to me!!! Finally I told her to copy the blue fade side of JB's indoor ... that way maybe it'd fly at least half as good as his kite does. Then she said she'd check to see those colors were in stock. Finally told her that if the colors weren't in stock, then make me a blue fade that she'd like. Should have done that in the beginning!!!

Thanks Lolly ... you did good, I like the kite!!!

Cheers,
Tom
