Expert Advice Desired

12 September 2007 - 10:51 AM

I currently have two Revolution kites in my Rev collection.
*One RevII (UL & SUL frames)
*One Barresi Std.

I would like to add a vented kite to my Rev collection for those high/choppy wind days.

What vented kite would you recommend? (knowing what Rev's I already have)
-Vented Supersonic?
-Vented Barresi?
-Other?

There is a chance that the vented kite I end up purchasing may complete my Revolution kite collection.
This is why I would appreciate your opinions on this topic.

Thank you!

Help - what should my next Rev be?

01 April 2007 - 07:07 PM

Hello,

This is my first post to the forum. Please help me choose my 2nd Rev.

I recently purchased my first quad kite; a Rev 1.5 SLE with 3 wrap rods. I love it! I would like to get another Rev for my kite bag.

What I like about the 1.5:
-Its speed
-Its ability to turn quickly
-It flies well here locally, normally the wind speed is between 2-8 mph
-Its responsiveness

Other Rev kites that interest me:
-Rev 2 (I like small quick kites. I am worried that my location may not be windy enough for it...)
-Blast (I hear it flies in lower winds than my 1.5 will. I am worried it will be slow like the Rev 1. The pull may be fun.)
-1.5 Baressi (I love my 1.5, it would be great to have another 1.5 with new graphics, different spars, and custom handles.)

What do you think?
What kite would you choose as your 2nd Rev?

I would appreciate your opinion!

Thank you,

Jex
