Hello John, After looking at the list and stepping aside from the indoor give-away contest. I just wanted to update my rev number. I now have a TOTAL of 9 revs not 6.

2 B-series (vent & std)
3 Bazzer eyes (2 custom, 1 regular)
1 Blast
1 Indoor
1 All Black 1.5 (center panel & rev logo too)
1 red/black/gold 1.5 (pre-mylar late 90s?)

Just wanted to keep current.

John,

They are not team kites! <grins>

Team Kites would be:-

JMH 1.5 2008
JMH 1 2008
JMH 1.5 1998
JMH 1 1998 (reworked graphic from c1991)
Rev 1.5 vented c1998

Original Shockwave evaluation
Original Supersonic evaluation

Rev 1 SUL Pink/Blue
Rev 1 SUL White

I did not think that they counted...

Do you own the team kites?

In other words, if the team broke up (god forbid), who keeps 'em? ;)

And, forgive my ignorance, what is JMH, and are they still Rev factory originally?

Jørgen Møeller Hansen is the Kite Designer/Graphic Designer. Martin Lester sews the sails which are finished at Revolution so are factory original.

No one else would have claim on the old kites at this stage. I part funded the new kite sets!

To make my list clear

1988 Rev 1
JB Standard
JB Vented
2008 Rev2 (with race frame)
20th Anniversary

It's not the size of your Rev.. its how you use it.
Seven days without flying a Rev makes one weak.

Hi folks! I just wanted to get on the tote board here - never know when John might want to give away another Rev to a noob :D

Picked up my first ever quad-line kite in San Diego CA this past September. It's a B-series standard.

The tips on this forum have really helped me get a handle on flying these things. I don't quite "own" my hover yet, but I'm consistent with a pretty tight wobble. :P

Smooth winds!
Ken
