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.

I've read in several places that when you purchase a Revolution Speed or Power kite that it comes with a case?Huh

Anyone have a picture of this case they mind sharing?

Thanks

the shockwave/supersonic/blast came with a heavier duty cordura bag that had a webbing handle at the half mark and two mesh slide in  pockets on the side.. i have a couple of them for single line kites and they work phenomenal as a quick grab and fly bag...

yeah, what I thought. The color looks like a standard 1.5 sleeve but I'm sure the material is beefier like for the b series.

I wonder why places call it a 'case'?

You can tell by the sleeve/case/bag when a kite was shipped from Rev. Pretty much. The flipflop bags was the latest and the wide red jb series before that.

Does it have the same pockets on the outside as the other rev bags? I can't tell
On my phone that is.

Revolution has changed the bags that they are now shipping the kites in.  The new bags are a soft printed sleeve that is very lightweight and printed with the model of Rev and colors.  These bags have started coming to market in the last 2-3 months and have replaced all other bags previously used.  They have a draw string on the top and no longer have pockets on the outside.

This should make it much easier to identify your kites when in the roll-up bags without having to pull each one out of its sleeve to see what it is.

Well, hopefully the one SKB is offering isn't like that and has the pockets.
