I would love to see a redesign of the Rev Kite Bag. Something to hold 4 basic sails, 2 sets of handles, a stake, and maybe 2-3 linesets. I confess that I'm not a fan of the roll up bag. Personally, I thought Jynx's home made bag hits the nail on the head in a lot of ways.



Thanks for the compliment! I've been sewing... and am donating a bag at TIKF and SPIKF!

I love mine! Holds 6-8 kites, two or more line sets and handles, stakes, and a chilled bottle of wine! Posted Image

My favorite is a simple bag with a zipper running the length. It has a big pouch, with zipper, on the outside. It has a shoulder strap and a handle to carry it. It can carry 8 to 10 REVs, lots of lines and handles.
I picked mine up at a kite festival in the UK about 10 years back. It is still holding up very well.

An alternate is to buy a snow ski bag and cut it down to length. During the spring sales they are cheap.

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


If I had the money, I'd be getting one of the lady vampire revs. Beautiful art worked very well onto the kite...

As for what would be nice from rev...lol Already discussed this on another thread... A bridle setup for a rev indoor to make it fly a bit more like a 1.5 on days that there isn't enough wind for an SUL. :P

There's two of us crazies here.... which one is this?
He's into the B series, choreography and coloring.
She's into a bridleless SUL and skiing with a 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!!

Imho just never mind I'm really looking forward to the B2 finally match up with my 1.5's :)
Cowboy, rocks in your pockets couldn't hurt.

I said frame, you said bridle .....
By my count, the popular requests other than the B2 (which I'm looking forward to) are the vented Blast and the outdoor Indoor Rev Posted Image


I know vented Blasts have been made, so that shouldn't be hard to do and I would absolutely buy one. Hopefully there are enough ideas here to keep the Revolution elves busy in the new year

Steven - I think Scott was saying that adding a bridle to an Indoor would make it safer to fly outdoors!:) The problem is the LE of the Indoor is longer than a 1.5 standard bridle allows, you would have to make your own or ....?:blink: Changing frames leaves you with the same problem, forces are not spread out equally over the entire length!!:wacko:

Happy Holidays Bazzer, you deserve a brief break from the sewing action.

upon your return though kind sir,
I'd think I'd like to try on/get in line for
a B-series pro, rev2 sized
SUL leading edge sleeve & a 3 piece leading edge tube
race frame members all around

hot fade/black center as a color scheme

+ an extra 4 wrap frame,
3 piece leading edge

+ a set of stacking lines for a progressive stack
(with the matching 1.5 SUL & a zen already in my possession)

before wildwood (in may) as a delivery schedule, possibly?

Wink! wink! ordering thru Weider, Barbara is picking up the tab,
neither of 'em knows a darn thing about this project yet!

Aye, B-2 probably won't be made in Pro... It'd be about the same price as a regular Pro since it's roughly the same labor on Bazzer's end, very few would pay what it'd cost.

As for the coloring, aye... It's a bit redundant to add it to the colorizer, but looking at the regular B-Series color format, it'd be simple to use the existing colorizer to the same end, same with the Zen.

Well if we are experimenting, lets go wild!

Maybe a REV2 in all white Icarex then (including the leading edge sleeve) and Harold Ames could possibly be convinced/significantly influenced to
tie-dye the sail, (acid etch dyes + an autoclave using 2 atmospheres of pressure & 240 degrees F) This process leeches the dyes thru the fabric's coating and steam-sets the color permanently. Not like design master paints (merely resting on the surface of nylon material), much more powerful colors are possible than printed Rev sails can reproduce using "four color process methods" in a commercial application on Icarex. its the same color value, intensity etc on both sides of the fabric and good for literally thousands of abusive hours!

My needs are simple. I'd like a credit card, paid by someone else, that is preloaded with a 5 million United airmiles so I could spend a year going to a different kite festival every weekend around the world.

Well, you asked. :kid_devlish:

I don't have any credit cards or air miles sitting around, but I do have accomodation :)

I'm sure Jacqui and Greg have been twisting your arm but it won't hurt for me to twist a little more...

Can I get in line on this idea?
