You can also date some of the older rev's (Not Neos Omega) by the use of Dust caps with metal inserts, I believe these were the oldest Rev's. Over to John Mitchell etc...

I "had" one of those. I bought it in 1991. My brother has it now. The sail was ripped by a dog and patched. It is in pretty bad shape the last time I saw it. It also had stainless outer ferrule for the leading edge rods and swivels on the bridle. The upper and and lower lines were also different lengths.
I flew an older one in early 1995 that belonged to "Drachen Himmel" in Bern, Switzerland. The difference is that the stainless outer ferrules had a slight bend in them. It is the REV in my Avatar.
The oldest original REV that I have now only goes back to 1995.

I still have the Rev I that I bought in march of '89. Same colors as the one in your avatar, but reversed.

The external ferrules on my kite, as well as the short pieces used for the end caps are actually aluminum arrow shafts...complete with a camouflage pattern printed on them!

My old Rev has the metal insert type end caps, no stainless or aluminium on the end of the rods, however there seems to be a slight "overwrap" of a light grey colour on the ends, might be a wear mark but looks to be raised slightly rather than worn.

It came with the unequal bridle swivels and clips. I have quite a collection of the clips now as the Rev 2's I got all had them on as well.

It is a great shame about the damage to the mesh part.

Wow that's one of the best Rev shots I have seen in ages. Can you imagine living in that house? Maybe we need a separate post for the best of the bunch?

The photo was taken at Chesterman Beach on the West coast of Vancouver Island, BC.
I know where my lottery winnings would go (after I stocked up on B-Series Revs)! :kid_smartass:

It's not the size of your Rev.. its how you use it.
Seven days without flying a Rev makes one weak.

I'd misplaced one of my kitebags with 8 or 9 kites in it for nearly a year and found it last week whilst looking for something else. There were 2 of my Rev IIs in it, including this custom.

It's a real Revolution, not a home-made one.The fellow that I got it from said he bought it p at the Revolution office. Apparently it was a custom that was never picked up by the original customer.
