Rev logo

21 December 2011 - 07:47 AM

Since I now have my be series pro.... I want a hard shell case. I am planning on fabricating it myself....

But I'd like to put the rev logo on it. Does any one have a vector art version?

This is for my personal use. I can photo & convert but if anyone has one and would care to share.

I apologize in advance if this request is "bad form."


Newbie jumps in the deep water...

Been wanting a Rev for years. Just something about 4lines vs 2lines. I mean much more opportunity to tie oneself in knots (literally and figuratively).

So here is what I have....

1) bad 4 line habits coming from 2 line flying
2) most 2 line experience with larger kites (think Team Hawaiian). Just showed my age ;-)
3) bad case of Jonesing for a Rev.
4) bought a used Shockwave. I figure that if something is worth doing it is worth doing it in the extreme.

Talk about a learning curve ;-) as I move from 2line large kites to zippy 4line Rev.

I understand the basic physics of these things which is what has been so attractive for years.

Now that I am on the Dark Side of things, it seems to me that

1) shockwave rod placement looks to be different than the rest of the Rev world. Correct? All pics I've found have the rods in front.
2) the bottom part of the bridle is different in that there are two vertical rods on each wingtip. Also the bottom is adjustable (add/reduce brake?) Any help on initial setting of this length would be appreciated as well.
