YESSS!!!

I found a 7m Raven at last!! Got it on Ebay.... It's a 2005 model with 5 struts (The larger sizes had 7 struts).

The only one I've ever seen after years (since around 2007) of searching... It apparently has a slow leak to the deflate valve which should be easy enough to fix.... Just need some strong wind now to test it out!

BOOM!! :D

man I regret giving mine away..I could have given it to you...as I think you'd appreciate it a lot more than the guy who actually took it off my hands...he pretty much just turned around and sold it.

Hi tautologies, Just out of interest was yours a Raven I (2005) or a Raven II (2006)? Both kites were almost identical in shape, just slightly different canopy design.

Cheers,
Dave

For the 7 I only had in the 2007 (I'm quite sure it was). I did have the 2006, but I don't think I ever had the 2005.

that is why I gave mine away :-) I realized I would never fly it again.
Torch now is IMO a way way better kite...though if you compare it to the then torch I think it has more of the raven DNA in it.

Tautologies, that depends on what you are looking to do. The raven 07 is still gonna give you more boost/hangtime than a Torch any year.
I just traded my 25m V4 for an 8m raven 06. I can't wait for enough wind to take it out.
