That is the Backtracker from Revolution.
It was manufactured for Revolution in China and had fiberglass rods.
The lines were fixed to the kite and the handles.
It was their real cheap entry into the 4 line market around 1995, which apparently did not go to well.
With the fiberglass rods it was not a very good flier. However if you changed to carbon rods, it improve quite a bit.
It is now a collectors item which some people on other kite forums have asked for at occasions.
You could buy these in the UK for a while from the Leading Edge Kite company (anyone remember them and their tie up with Mr B?). The Backtracker was only available for a short period. They were designed as a cheap entry level Rev. The problem is they looked bad and flew hooribly!
Backtrackers were out in the mid 90s, I -think- between the II and 1.5. Nasty bit of business they are.
That is correct, it did come out between the II and 1.5. I am fairly sure it was between the last 6 months of 1994 through the first 6 months of 1995. Despite being so cheap, it was a rarity in Europe.
