why retreat ? :lol:

At least the Weston crashes were real.

Neil, important Q. What colour did you plump for ? :blue-grin:


Initially I had ordered black and gold which it turns out clashed with Jonesy, but they didnt have one in stock so my second choice was blue and black :)

Hiya, I have a similar dilemma, Im looking to get my first revolution and am torn between a RevI Sedgwick and RevII Barresi. With line, handles and everything else they come out at exactly the same price. The Sedgwick has a 2 and 4 wrap frame while the Barresi has a 2 and 3, so I think this gives them pretty similar wind ranges (with the RevI having a slight edge at both the upper and lower end).

A lot of people seem to really love the Barresi - could you give me some idea what it is about it that you prefer over the RevI? I've read that the RevI is more precise, so is the Barresi faster/twitchier? would this mean that it is potentially not the best kite to learn the ropes on?

Finally a lot of people have recommended trying to meet up with an existing flyer, does anyone live near to Guildford who would be willing to give me a hand setting up and getting flying once I take the plunge?

Thanks for all the helpful info on the forums!

P.S. what exactly is a 'wrap'? and how/why does it effect the wind speed you can fly in?
