and I'm off to another adventure and wait till you see my latest plan on a place to fly

Ben, I would take a special "new" Rev, one that was a piece of garbage and flies like crap, put it up for full display and let em copy the heck out of it. :) After they put the thing to market the can burn their own bridge.

I like Kent's idea. Only problem will be all the new fliers we lose because they bought a POS that could not fly, got frustrated and bail on the sport. The economy the last few years has most people looking for something for the least $ possible. It unfortunately gives these junk kites added interest. Hopefully most of them will realise it is the cheap knockoff they bought, and not they type of kite... Even worse is just how close to EXP pricing some of those knock-offs are..

I was lucky enough to already be in the kiting scene before I came to Rev's, I heard ahead of time how bad these knock-offs were and didn't give them a second glance. Most new fliers I fear will not have that forewarning.

Anyone have any ideas how we can get the word out there so when people search and find one of those adds, right next to it is a rev one, or at least a link to good information/this forum so we can educate people before they buy?

Hi Ben....

Have a good and safe trip. Be careful.... in your "Ben way of doing things"! ;)

I like your idea... make it extremely unbalanced.... maybe venting on one side (as if it's the greatest new tweak to a Rev- ever!) and let them copy away. LOL!!!

Have fun.

Love ya, baby.
