So what would you like to see comming out of Rev next year and what are you planning to get?

Personally I think I'd like a vented Blast more than anything.

I'm planning on looking into the Rev II / B2 side of things next year for a high wind toy. I love my Prism Micron dual line reflex tester, but I'm way better with 4 lines than 2 so a small rev in standard and vented are something I'm looking at.


So what would the rest of you like outta Rev ?

I'm going to skip letters to Santa and go straight to the source. Looking for 3 new kites, but they won't make it before Christmas. The order will though!

Well, I wish for some better colors on the Supersonics and Shockwaves. :) I think a vented Blast would be received a lot better than a Rev II. And for the ultimate wish list....a Masterpiece 4-8!!!! he he he he he....

Just curious, I have just bought a SUL, but why isn't it offered as a B series? Probably a simple reason, and may have been answered before, but as a new member..............

I do fancy a Blast, but more colour options would be nice, especially if I could get one in Lime and Black to match my B series kites

Totally agree about the sonic and shockwave needing some prettying up ... there isn't a single current color choice I like.

I'm still not sure I would like one seeing as how I have a number of B's and Blasts, but the present colors is certainly something holding me back from trying one. I'd have to check again, but when I looked at the DVD that came with my Blast I recall wondering why the shockwave and sonic had a more complicated bridle than the Blast.

I still don't think i'll get into the power revs, but you got the right idea - if you're going to dream then you may as well dream big. Make it a Bazzer dragon masterpiece 4-8 and we have a winner. Unfortunately that will likely send the poor man into a breakdown at the mere thought of it.

I'm trying to think what other products I'd like rev to make... Anyone else for a vented blast???

Wouldn't a Rev 2 sized "B" series be a contradiction of intent??!!Posted Image If the Rev 2 design is for speed, not precision, then what is the purpose of trying to make them more precise?? Aren't there enough choices in the 1.5 series to keep us happy??:wacko: I happen to like the differences in the designs, use the right kite to fill the daily need!!:) IMHO!!

A new frame for my B series... oh hold it you mean what I want to see rev do this year, Other then flourish even more, there isn't much i could think of that the capable staff at Rev can do on their own.

All the best

Because there's not much weight difference between a standard B and an SUL -- polyester sails, 2-wrap frames.

I have a Vented Blast, it is great fun, highly reccomended.

Becomes a precision kite in lower winds, still ripping fast in higher winds, just you can stand your ground a bit more. B)

Hope everyone has a good Christmas.

My guess is the purpose would be to enhance the little bugger with the sail updates from the B series to make it smoother and prettier than it's present incarnation. Enhance the stability and precision, keep the speed, make it prettier and a general refresh all add up to a boost to sales for that model Posted Image

Perhaps some handles sized and shaped specifically for the size and 2 frames (race + something) and it sounds like a good idea to me. I don't get monster winds often enough to justify the cost of a Bazzer made Rev (Xtra Vent), but a factory made Rev II vented could make a welcome addition to my bag for those days.

I fly power kites, I don't mind the pull, I just want to be able to take it into even higher winds Posted Image

Bazzer will make your B-series Pro as an SUL if you order it that way, any of the configurations. Be patient and get what you want, maybe a nice Valentine's Day present?
