Yeah John, I went through your list a while ago. Fantastic - very impressive. "Over 100" for the Ritters? LOL When people catch this bug, they CATCH it, don't they?

Thanks!
Actually I got my first REV in 1990 and I think I have or had 73 REVs not 72.

I got my first one (a Rev 1) in 1991... Sold it because it didn't fly right.

6 months later, I realized I'd had my verticals on the front of the kite instead of the back.

Lolly and Co. gave me a Rev II near the end of 1991, and I've been flying them ever since.

80% of my Rev collection has come in the last three years. ;)

191 counted between everyone who has posted thus far... And that's just between a whopping 12 people, if I count right.

An average of 15.916 Revs per person... Now if that isn't an addiction, I don't know what is! ;)

Geezer just chimed in from the other side of the Kitelife office... "I've got 5!"

So, 196 between 13 people. ;)

You mean you don't have a B-Series, Jim? Tsk, tsk. I have two, y'know - a vented and an un-vented. I would heartily recommend them.... :lol: :lol: :lol:


I'm holding out until I can try one first, I have a few to get ahead and those are first on my list. I really like the progressive stack and go figure I don't have a Rev II 1.5 and 1 that match plus I really enjoyed the vented progressive stack as well, so thats 6 + the masterpiece on deck before I can consider.

Especially heavy are the prototypes that Bazzer did on Rev 1 's before his masterpiece series came out... I've got a vented and non-vented 1, no 1.5 Bazzers yet. ;)
