One of the most popular sections of the GWTW Forum has long been the Swap Meet.  A great place to sell old, seldom flown kites or to get great deals on used (gently flown) kites.  Only registered users can see the Swap Meet section, let alone wheel and deal.  1000's (literally) of kites have changed hands thanks to the Swap Meet.

One of them is my local kite shop. I'll give them a call I guess...but they will not be able to give me an answer without calling Rev. Should be easier.

I asked them before, the Eyes were US$600 so I assume it should be about the same for the Sizzle.

Most masterpiece series kites run between $550 and $650.  The sizzle masterpiece is one of the older ones and not sure if any of them are still available.  Those are made by Bazzar and he may be able to build one for you custom.  I have a couple of the Sizzle kites, have a blue and a green.

The Masterpiece kites are usually not stocked by the Rev dealers and usually purchased straight from Rev.  The reason for this is that they are made in very limited amounts (usually in batches of 6 or 10 total).  There just isn't any way to get them to the shops and even if they did send one or two to the shops, they would usually be in the wrong colors anyways.  You can try your local shop and they should be able to deal with Rev for you - but the price the local shop gets is usually the same price as everyone else so your local shop would either have to mark the price up a little or just get the kite for you at cost which isn't usually the highest priority for obvious reasons.

My suggestion is to contact Lolly or Ben at Rev directly, you can get their number right off of their website (I agree it is in major need of upgrading and improvement).  Call Lolly directly and she can tell you instantly if they have that particular Masterpiece available or if they will need to contact Bazzar about making it.

The Masterpiece series kites are usually done in a very limited amount so don't be upset if they are completely sold out and they are no longer making any of them.  Bazzar is the only artist that I know of that has made additional kites after the first Masterpiece offerings were done so you may still have a chance of getting one.

Hope this helps.

Thanks for the replies. I would think that any kite under "Products" on a web site would still be available...or they should not be listed as a "product".  That being said...perhaps a $600 rev would not be the best place for my wife to start out at.

To start out...probably not. Smiley

Usually your first kite gets a bit of abuse as you begin to master it.  For 1/3 the price you can get one of the Baressi signature series kites which is arguably one of the best Rev's on the market.  The B-Series comes with everything but line (need to add that with the package) and two complete framesets for different wind conditions - where the Masterpieces are sold as kite and bag only.  Handles, lines, manual, DVD are not included.

Actually, Revs are pretty tough. I still have my first EXP from many years ago and still loan it out for others to fly.
I say go for Masterpiece and love it and fly it to death.
