 My guess is one of 2 things - 1. it's from Dave at the Kite connection, He has ordered so much stuff from Rev that they do make mids for him to sell through his shop. 2.- it's a special request. Throw enough money in Rev's direction and they will make darn near anything.

The mid in an SLE is not a common thing for sale everywhere.

It's from Dave at http://www.kiteconnection.com I believe there are a few color layouts in the 1.5 they only make for him. Both my kites are from him. I live about 20 minutes from his kite shop on the pier in Huntington Beach. Not sure if all Rev 1.5's are like this but I believe the sail is made with the same material as the B series kites.

pretty sure it is made from Icarex, not nylon. They went back and forth between materials. Should be a history on the Rev site from John Mitchell on all about Revs from beginning to about 2010. Good reading for those so inclined!

The key is the 2 wraps in my hands. Brings the total weight down 😋
