Our shipment of the 20th Anniversary Rev just arrived as well! We still have several available but they are going fast. Those of you who have put your names on the pre-order list - don't worry! You'll be getting yours very soon! :)

If I do get one of these I plan on flying the :censored: out of it.

One thing just crossed my mind, with the B-Series panels on one side how will that effect the handling as we know what will happen with eventual sail stretching?

Does it make this kite fly different off the table in fact, the few times I have flown the B-Series I have noticed the slight increasing pull it produces during turns which is why I'm thinking this will be an off balanced flyer at some point.

Then again that could be a benefit, light right turns and bulldog lefts, could be an ultra flat Weider axle machine from hell :kid_smartass:

Oh well just me rambling and always questioning things :kid_brooding:
Jim,

Rev's are like a carbon framed out-of-body experience
