The Logos look wrong, for a start.

Is it a Rev 1 sail cut down to Rev 2 size, so possibly a first version.

?

If you look closely you will see a II for REV II. It is not a REV I cut down to a REV II.

Hi John-
I certainly don't have any history references past this time last year....
but... it appears to me that it's one piece of fabric. It definitely looks like the logo panel (what we are used to seeing) isn't there.
I like the look!

The REV II basic "was" always a single color.

This one seems a bit difficult.
Tip 1: This REV II has something that some other REV IIs have but other REV IIs don't have.
Tip 2: Both Laura and Simon have tipped on it, but did not nail it.

Logo color is different then previous maybe the start of the 3d effect.

Great color though would look great on a black panel.

It looks like the entire sail is one piece of fabric. I don't remember seeing that when the logo is in the center and it's not a Masterpiece.
After another look, is that part of the bridal or is this two pieces of fabric sewn in the middle?

Are you seeing something I did not notice?

The basic was always one piece. Unfortunately it is not made anymore.
No, it is not a masterpiece. The bridle is not it. The sail is not sewn in 2 pieces.

Is it the colour of the Logo then?

Anything to do with Blue on Red?

If it is we are getting just a little too deep into this :wacko:

If you look back at the REV II's, they had all sorts of colors for the logos; pink, blue, turquoise, black, orange and etc.
No, it is not the color of the logo.

Tip: The REV II basic(one piece, single color sail) was last marketed in 1996.

Didn't the old Rev II have a curved Rev logo rather than this straight diminshing one?

I prefer (IMHO) the curved logo, not sure of the age of my rev II (it is a gift 3rd hand).

It's solid sail in red with a blue/black logo in curvy style (date?)

This is completely different from the one in John's photo.

Is it that the LE is slightly curved like a 1.5 ????

Congratulations! You nailed it!

The REV II we found was apparently a proposed version for 1997. As far as I can determined it was never produced. We found another one in pink with the straight blue logo.
Revolution changed their logo at the start of 1997. You will see some REV 1.5's floating around that look identical except for the logo. With the old logo it was made in 1995 and 1996. With the new logo it was made in 1997. In 1998 the REV 1.5 changed to 3 panels on each side and was named the REV 1.5 SLE. The material changed from nylon to polyester. It also came standard with the new SLE rod. At the same time the REV 1.5 EXP came out, staying with nylon material, which looked similar to the previous 1.5 having two panels on each side however the logo section changed to a smaller design with EXP added in.
I could go on and on, on this. I will save it for another time.

The one you have probably looks like this, except for the colors:
DSC37734.jpg

Your REV II was made between 1990 and 1996. If it has plastic end caps it would have been after 1990, maybe 1991. I am not quite sure when the change was made from the old metal with rubber cap and D-clip to the simpler plastic cap.
The curvy logo was last used in 1996 production. The straight logo started in 1997. Going back further the curvy logo replaced the Neos Omega logo somewhere around the end of 1988 start of 1989. I asked the other day about this. They weren't so sure when it was but it was clear why they changed.

The REV II always had a very straight leading edge. Of course it will show a visible curve with more flexible rods.

I was trawling through some old photos today and came across this one. In the photo you will find pilots who now fly in 3 different teams in 3 different countries. All but one of the people in this shot currently fly in well known quad teams.

Can you name:

the current teams?
the teams at the time?
the names of the fliers

extra bonus points for naming the guy in the tasteful yellow top and trouser outfit!

I guess I should have put a disclaimer on this like they do the lottery. Family members of the people involved may not participate in this competition!

However, can you name the festival?

I recognize four of six and I know which 3 teams they are now and only one of the teams at the time of the photo.
I can't seem to recognize the guy in the yellow on the left or the the guy on the right in blue.
