I've become fascinated with Revolution kites since inadvertently discovering them while browsing the wider range of kiting options. I mostly fly power-kites of the more lifty variety, the kind that only get really interesting as the winds approach and exceed 10mph, which means that on slow summer days I get to spend a lot of time looking at flat kites!
Consequently I'm looking for a Revolution with as wide a wind range as possible, but biased towards the lower end of the scale. I can probably only afford to buy one Rev (I said that about foils too, mind you), so I want to make sure I get the right one.....I was thinking of getting the B Series JB Pro (standard sail, no vents), with a race frame, 80ft - 90lb lines and the JB handles.
From what I can make out this will give me a wind range from about 3mph up into the mid teens.....at which point I'll be dangling from a foil anyway! I have to admit that the looks of the Pro kite have been a major influence on my thinking, I know that the regular B Series pack offers everything I need for about £100 less, but I just don't like the look of them.....The white centre panel looks a bit too much like a pair of boxer shorts to me!
Is this a mad plan or does it actually make any sense?
TIA & All the best
It makes sense, but you're right you get more for your money with B package. One HEALTH WARNING though . . . . . . you may find your foils get dusty . . . . . 5 Rev's later mine have!!!
