11 December 2009 - 05:21 PM

hey guys, didn't mean to ANGER people with the CLASSIC "J.B. has got a NEW BAG" and the FONT ISSUE.... I'm a TOTAL CAVEMAN when it comes to FORUMS, I just did NOT realize the forum ROAD RULEZ..... I got it now....

I was just CURIOUS if anyone out there had FEELINGS about CHANGE....

Monkey has INSPIRED me with his RESPONCE and the I want to say thanks to all the RESPONSES....

in HONOR of BOTH JB's ..... I FEEL GOOD!!!! flying a REV!!!! like sugar and spice


and a MUST SEE.... PORTLAND OREGON..... one handed INVERTED HOVER??? oh John, UR the MAN!!! this is why REV has made a WING with his DESIGN & NAME ON IT!!!



I do like madquads idea..... just keep the REV in the air and U don't need the bag~~~ :blink:

:wub:

Way too stiff. The should go back to the old bags. Nice soft flexible material.


hey John, well we have found 3 of us out here.... do you think it's a safety factor???? for the wing???? I have never had any damage to my wings from the other bags, but it could happen..... :huh:

there MUST B an answer to why they would CHANGE to a HEAVIER MATERIAL, cause U would think it's gonna do NOTHING but ADD to the COST of the OVERALL manufacturing price????? not that I have an ISSUE with heavy material, it's just a BIT STIFF!!!! :wacko:

maybe it just needs some GOOD WORKING IN???? maybe a GOOD WASHING would break it in???? :blink:

Yes, I have two of them. I assume that you are talking about the Red bags, with the Revolution logo, printed on the side. I likewise do not like them. They are way too stiff. The pocket on the outside is absolutely useless. You can't put the handles in the pocket, nor can I put my flight lines, in there. What the heck is it for - cigarettes? Oh, and just try and close and open the top. It's nearly impossible, because the fabric is so stiff. And you are also right, the first thing I saw in the bag, was a tag that read "Made in Mexico". This is never a good sign.............come on REV, you can do better..................at least the Rev is still a great kite...........

And, you asked if anyone had modified them, with a snap! Well, "BINGO" again...........that was the first thing tht I did, after trying to insert the rev, and close the case. Oh, and if you can sew, while you are fixing the opening, may as well go ahead, and remove the useless mesh pouch, unless you smoke. I'll try to add photos............Reef Runner

Hey REEFRUNNER, U look like U sure got it going on there..... :blink: I use the litttle pocket on the side to hold PENS so that I can SIGN autographs from BEWILDERED CROWDS that have never seen a REV!!!! NOT!!! but it's a HANDY POCKET like U said for CIGS :blushing:

I only have one of them and all the rest of mine have the MORE SUPPLE MATERIAL.... B) so ONE out of 11 is not to bad, but I would like to see the softer material.... maybe it's a SAFETY THING so as the WING does NOT GET DAMAGED as with the softer MATERIAL??? any iQuad info about this???? what's the TEAMS VERDICT???? ;) GOOD PICTURES REEF~~~ :wub:

I don't know too much about the REV YO-YO as I could never use them well. It was never my thing.
I do know they are NOT made anymore. They were expensive and they were really top end stuff.
I did notice one a couple years ago at a Kite shop in San Diego, so if you are looking for another one, you might start asking around at kite shops and see if they might have one laying back in the stock room some where or in a drawer.


Hey John, yes I realize that they are NO LONGER in production.... :wacko: yo yo's are like kites to me.... just another toy on the end of a string.... I already have a G-Force yo yo with the FACTORY PACKAGING and it's gotta be the COOLEST thing around....in yo yo terms at least.... I'm bringing it with me to MIKE and hopefully the TEAM FACTORY will have all the info I want... :)

again, yes they were VERY EXPENSIVE, but hey if it's got REV on it, then it's GOTTA BE WORTH IT!!!! B)

Tim,
I had iQuad sign three B-series at Wildwoods last year with a black sharpie and have seen very little to no bleed through on any of the sails. I also have a Shook Mesh that is signed with the same type marker again with no bleed through. I will be at MIKE (Thursday through Monday) so come on over to the WOW set up on the beach. We don't bite (much) and would love to meet you to exchange ideas / war stories.

Hey Dave, thanks for this info..... I took the BIG LEAP of faith last night and took a BLACK SHARPIE to one of my REV II sails and NO BLEED THROUGH!!

I then went to a Prism E2 and tried that sail..... again NO BLEEDING, but on the sail of a Prism Micron....WATCH OUT!!!!

what can a REV FLYER EXPECT, THIS IS IT: you can't TRUST A KITE!!!!!! stay SAFE and FLY A WING :P

I will definately HUNT U down on the sand....looking for the WOW booth/set up... B) I will be arriving Friday late morning and staying until Sunday afternoon.... it's gonna be a LOAD of FUN!!! looking forward to meeting ALL the REV PLAYERS.... ;)

REV KITES R JUST 2 COOL 4 SCHOOL... 2 lines are COOL, but 4 lines will TAKE U 2 SCHOOL.... :devil: fly REV or stay on the PORCH!!!! :wacko:
