Curious if anyone within driving distance by any chance has one of the new Rev Rx or XX kites on hand and wouldn't mind letting me have a feel for them? Really considering jumping for one but unsure of how they feel, since it's a different preference for every individual.
Thanks, feel free to PM too if you like.

I'm brand spanking new hoping to make some awesome new kite friends in the San Francisco Bay area..I'm in Santa Clara and frequent the Kite Lot in Mountain view by Google, flying RC stuff secretly.
Ive done research and know there's a Bay Area kite sport league or something, and big kite groups up in Berkeley.
That's just too far for my tight schedule.
So hoping to meet some folks around closer here that will be willing to "take me under their wing" (or kite).
I'm madly interested in the Rev kites.
Actually I'm this close to dropping my wallet for the new EXP Rx kite, but at the same time, I really rather just get the Classic 1.5 and spend longer in the learning curve.
I don't mean to start anything with the kite naming here, I'm just going with what is available to me today as a new comer. I am aware of the history of Rev and the whole rebranding debacle that happened recently (yes, I've been lurking and researching a ton on Rev kites already even though I've never touched one yet)
A mentor and flying friend on the weekends will be awesome, hoping to meet someone really soon whos willing to help guide me to my first purchase. The summer is already here and the winds are insane!
Thanks and appreciate all of you.
