So I have a Rev Blast currently. Not a power blast 2-4 or 4-8, just a plain old Rev Blast pictured below. I really love this kite, it is my favorite of the rev's so far.

My question is, are there different revisions of the blast? I seem to recall there was a super blast as well?? Can someone tell me which blast I have?

The reason for this question is that a sick twisted dark side of me wants to try and stack a pair of blasts, but the ones I see online new are a different sail pattern? I am not sure if I could stack a new one with the one I have..?

Has anyone stacked blasts before? and Yes this is Watty's fault, getting me thinking about stacking..

The Super Blast is now called the Blast 2-4.

Best of my knowledge, same but a different layout. I have the same as you as well as the diamond centered one... No difference other than layout from what I see.

That was my concern the very different panel layout and trying to stack them..

@Steve - are both yours full panel, or is one vented? Have you stacked them yet?Posted Image

Technically I have 3 full sails - one current layout and 2 of the older layout.

Oh yes, I have a vented in the current layout as well ;-)

Never stacked them but I was actually talking to Ben about that today :-)

Dan Jones and I stacked our two 4-8 blasts here in Milwaukee WI...

At 6'6" Dan isn't a small guy... and they lifted him about 5' to 6' off the ground! ...Quite a sight!
