I stumbled across this article the other day and I was wondering whatever became of "The AfterShock"? Was this actually produced or was it a precursor to the Blast 4.8??? Any Rev Gurus out there remember this???

I have heard of it, but really I don't know anything of value about it.
I think Ben could give you a much better picture on the subject.

I thought it was interesting that the downspars were inside pockets. Makes sense if you're using it in an aquatic way. Looks like Revolution may have been thinking about kite surfing...Hmm.
