Revolution Package: B-Series Mid-Vent (Blue/Grey) by John Barresi

Based on the original Rev 1.5 design, the B-Series is the ideal choice for any recreational, hard core precision or competition flier… After 18 years of competition and nine national quad line championships, John has utilized a number of modifications and features which make this a true high performance package that anyone can fly.
To keep you flying whenever possible, the B-Series Mid-Vent comes with two frames (2 and 3 wrap), giving you the versatility of being able to switch your frames based on the current wind, and you can also slide your lighter leading edge rods in parallel with the heavier leading edge when the wind is up, effectively doubling your leading edge strength.
The B-Series handles are 13″ long, and come with a pre-tied adjustment knot system which enables you to increase or decrease the reverse control.
