Thank you for the "welcome" John. Looks like I need 6.94 more to keep up with the Joneses. I do have one on the way right now actually. I think it left Rev today, on it's way to the place I ordered it from. So it'll be 5.94 more in a short while.

By the way John, the kite is a B Series and on Rev's site it has some guy named John Baressi all over the write up for this kite.... any relation? Posted Image

Since my collection seems to be growing ....

1.5 SLE in red/black with black center
1.5 B-series full vent in red/black
Indoor Rev in red/white/black
1.5 B-series in red/grey

Since I now have 2 full sails I can start flying team with my girlfriend, so I'm hoping to win the June Rev on kitelife.com so that I don't have to buy another vented Posted Image

Hopefully my street skills get better and better so I don't need to buy a Zen, and hopefully I don't come across a Bazzer Double Dragon for sale or I'm really in trouble.

What do all of you with over 10 Revs do with them all???

you occasionally let one go to some deserving soul who looks like they could use a REV upgrade! I only carry one bag, but change it's contents to match the conditions I'm expecting that trip.
It usually has two Rev2 with 3 piece race frames trained together, a Zen, a full suite of three Pro 1.5 B-series, two Old Glories, one Bazzer Flame, one all black mid-vent SLE, one rainbow 1.5 SLE and one SUL b-series.

The second bag contains a Gibian 1.5 Masterpiece, a Blast, Shockwave and Supersonic (speed series kites), two indoor Revs, a custom kite called the "x-wing" by Jeff Irons, a couple of Go fly joel Schultz knockoffs and some kites I built myself called "tirips" (in honor of the Spirit upon which they are based). I also carry one of Dave Ashworth's 1.5 Orcon-sail indoor kites and some skate stuff out of Focus Kites. There's a BAcktracker in there somewhere, as that was my first quad. And a 13 colonies patriotic Rev 1 (No.7 I think).

My offspring has 1/2 dozen of old style SLE Revs (he currently lives in Atlanta), a couple of full sails and a couple of full vents and couple of hacked-up custom mini vents.

Then I have a hard-sided, double golf club SKB case that holds 20 mini-revs in various configurations,.. the 14 largest ones have a 42 inch leading edge (Harold Ames) and the rest are 36 inch leading edge (Paul Dugard). They are trained together as six pack stacks. Fun to fly but almost abusive to transport, nothing breaks down and it's fricken huge!

My parents gave me a red, yellow, and black indoor at wildwood. That brings me up to four.

that is an average, He isn't taking into consideration that some people have lots of kites. There are some people I've never seen the same kite twice. Or some that change kites every hour. As far as I'm conserned, four is a very good number;one indoor, one full-vent, one mid-vent, one full-sail. And if you don't like flying indoor three is enough.

4 might be all you want to cover the wind ranges.

However fairly obviously I hope you NEED more than that. :)
