Hi
On the Revolution Supersonic do the vertical spars fit on the front or rear of the sail? I have seen pictures with them on the front (bridle side) and the inner spar on the back and the outer spar on the front.

Thankyou.

Thanks for that
The rear seems the most sensible. The reason I ask is that the Powerkitecentre web site seems to show them both on the front and I saw one today trying to be flown with one on the front and one on the rear.

Yes, the vertical rods go on the back of the kite, as with any other Revolution kite. I always giggle when I see images of the rods on the front.

Yuuuuup....every Rev kite has the spars on the BACK. With the Sonic and Shockwave, it is easier to get this wrong because putting the rods in the back means you need to roll the leading edge over which billows the sail in what appears to be the wrong direction.
