Not being a die-hard collector, nor a hoarder of kites, I have drastically lightened up my Rev Bag over the past couple of years, and with mixed feelings, I have managed to thin out quite a few, while holding onto, some of my old favorites (and even added a couple, here and there). Yes, there are Revs to fly, and then there are Revs to hang on the wall, so good or bad, (and not that the ones I let go were bad, because they surely weren't), the kites that I kept, were simply the ones that I would always go to, during the short and limited times that I had to fly. Didn't someone once say, "so many kites and so little time to fly"? If not, they should have, but as I eventually trimmed down, my once growing collection, moving them on to others who had a bit more time to put them through the paces, I said good bye to my beautiful Lee Sedgwick Rev I, a complete set of B-series (std, mid & vtd), as well as my gorgeous set of B-Pros (std, mid & vtd), along with a few stand alone B's and 1.5 SLE's.
As for the keepers, in the 1.5 category, I was always finding myself going for one of my mid-vent B-series, so yep, that one remains. Then, changing gears a bit, along came a little Rev II, and after a shaky start, I finally became quite fond of that little kite, especially when the wind was really cooking. This, of course, eventually lead me to my favorite Rev - the B2 standard. Now, this may or may not remain my favorite Rev, because recently, I've added a brand new B2 mid, as well as a B2 vtd. Neither of these have been flown yet, but knowing how I really love to fly in the brisk coastal winds, of North Carolina's Outer Banks, and being well aware of how "vents", improved the 1.5 experience, I am really looking forward to checking out these new B2's, so watch out B2 std, there's a new pair of horses in the stable, just waiting for summer.
