I finally dropped by Revolution today to pay for and pickup my Connor Doran T-shirt.

I was escorted by Lolly into the production room where I saw the first run of the NEW REV II JB series in final preparation which she was really happy to show to me.
These new REV II Bs are really made well.

I learned that they will have:
- absolutely all panels made of Icarex Polyester, which I verified.
- 11 inch handles instead of the previous 9 inch handles shipped with the REV II.
- two frame sets being a two and three wraps all with the 3 piece leading edge.

There is also a new REV II emblem to the right below the logo which I did not see on the prototype. Nice!
I recall seeing red, blue and yellow colors along with the gray and black. I am sure there are more colors available.
And I could swear I saw vented versions being prepared or was those 1.5s?

I did not ask but I am assuming the B 2's are available now.

I got a chance to fly Ben's Prototype while in Tobago.
80 ft lines in a 6-8 mph breeze (not sustained) and LOVED the way it flew (even with Ben's bizarro brake settings).
Feels light on the lines and very responsive, effortless.
Axels easily and reacts well to sudden inputs without oversteer.

Oh yeah......it now resides in my bag so if you're at TI and want to give it a go, just ask.

@Alden......No, it won't get left out in the sand overnight.........
@Jynx.......yes, I'm still a brat!!!!!!!!!!!

Not forgetting the chance for as B mid and full vent stack? Just need some custom Rev 1's :kid_devlish:

Or even B2 Full v mid v standard, B full v mid v standard, 1 custom full v mid v standard. Now THAT would be a stack worth seeing.

You were both hilarious, moaning about how someone could take your kites and talking about Karma...

Like kids at Christmas when I told you that they were still laying on the beach where you left them.

Rich knows what I'd say. Posted Image

Now, about the kite. Hopefully Ben will have one at TI so we can take it for a spin.
