Hiya.
Is the B-series in Teal only available in the USA ?
Is this a mistake ?

In the UK you can order the lime, like the main Rev site.
Did that replace the teal or have some websites got confused ?
Some sites list "yellow" (maybe they mean lime) and also "gold".

FYI: Teal would have been my 3rd choice. :kid_content:

I have the teal. It is a new colour added late last year.
John B mentioned somewhere that one of the colours was being dropped. I don't recall exactly but it seems it was lime.

To my knowledge REV has never restricted any particular colours to any country.
One point, Web sites are not always up-to-date. I would suggest telephoning the shop and ask them personally about the teal.

Good advice about ringing. If you are using the shop I think you are, they have more on offer than their website says!

Maybe this thread would be a good prompt for a What's your favourite colour

I think this particular 'My Favourite Colour' survey was done in Smash Hits once. I didn't follow it - I turned six and reckoned I was too old for such things.....

Complete shock - we received our Twin Teal standard B-series Revs today (in UK). :)

After putting in an order and hearing rumours that the teal would not be available for many months in the UK I just forgot about it.
Then decided (mentally) to go with the Blue and Purple to match our venteds, only to discover the Teals had arrived already within 2 weeks of the initial communication! :)

The Teals are not listed on any UK website (to my knowledge, yet).

I ordered gold B-Series kites as I sometimes fly with the iSlandQuaders down in Victoria and no one had a gold coloured one yet.
It's helpful to have a different colour when you're in teams and mega-quads, so you can pick out which one is yours after a few Compound Benefits. B)

My own personal favourite though, is a monochrome sail, as it's more subtle and the individual panels shimmer and darken as the kite moves through the sky.

We subscribe to the other train of thought here. All our kites are the same colour so no-one knows its me that is in the wrong place!

Hi Stephen,
Surely that would *never* happen :):):);)

P.S. regarding the colours, we would have gone with your suggestion on the matching set, but the order came in amazingly fast.
It would have been rude to not buy them! :blush:

Well, that explains why Stephen made me fly a mylar kite when he introduced me to team flying - it is transparent and cannot be seen!
