Well Family we at Revolution are about to have a birthday and thats the 20th year of Revolution kites and being that this is a huge milestone in kitting
we wanted to do something very special and that is the 20th year Anniversary Kite. This kite will be a 1.5 and will combine both the old and the new as far
as sail pattern goes and we will frame this kite with our new Race Rods, each of the kites will be signed and dated by the brothers and this will be a limited run and then the pattern will be destroyed, never to be done again. This kite will come with the 20th anniversary logo done in gold and the Revolution logo
also done in gold, it will come with the simple draw string bag with the 20th anniversary patch sewn on it as well and in my opinion is a must have for any
and all Revolution fliers. That being said I just wanted to give you a peek at the rough of this wonderful part of kitting history and to let you know that after 20 years we as a company are alive and well and still made in the USA, so let there be no doubt we are the Revolution in kitting and want all of you who
have been there with us to share the spirit and joy of still being the best................

ooooh, purty.

are they all going to be blue for the accent color, or will there be others as well? (this is idle curiosity...certainly not something that would keep me from buying one!)

There will be a very limited production on these kites from what I have been told. We do have a standing order for the first batch that gets finished up and will have them available for purchase. Final pricing has not yet been established but it is said that they are going to be fairly affordable for a limited production kite. Much less than the Masterpiece series kites anyways.

Happy 20th B-day REV!!! We're proud to be a part of your family and celebration. :rainbowwave: :happybday:

Very nice kite, would like to think that one would be available to come to Australia, depending on the cost.

I'll take a Reg and a Vented Ben, Call me or PM me some info and I'll give you a ring with the numbers.

What are the chances of getting mine with Your's and Lolly's signatures as well ? as far as I'm concerned you 2 are just as much a part of the Revolution Legacy.

I very much second Jims comment above. It would be great to have Ben and Lolly sign it. Personaly the only folks I have had electrical contact with are them and the service is great.

I know the brothers "invented" Rev. Maybe the extra signatures could be by request? Making a ltd edition ltd edition.

Can you let us know the price ASAP please. I have some kites planed, might be able to afford this one???? My birthday is 11th Jan, could be my present to myself!!
