The difference is in the panel layouts I believe.

The vertical bands tend to channel the wind in a similar way to the B series sails.

If I am wrong I am sure I will soon be corrected.

All I know is I have an old standard Rev 1, and have tried other Rev 1's. Just like my Sedgwicks more.

Oh and I think the vented layout on the Sedgwick is prettyer. Not tried a standard vented.

The biggest difference is the panal layout. Obviously there is a difference which can change the flight characteristics of the kite. Plus on the vented versions, the venting is arranged differently. I think there may be some difference in the fabric or something, but I don't own one so I don't really know.

hey

Can someone tell me wath the differce between the sedgwick and the normal rev one

When the REV I Sedgewick first came out, it was the only REV I made with a polyester sail. The other and previous REV I's had nylon sails. They flew quite different.
The REV I today is made with polyester and depending on how you buy it, it might have a one panel on each side as polyester, mylar or venting.
The REV I today, polyester only, and the Sedgewick non-vented fly quite similarly. If you have REV I with the mylar panel then it flies a bit different. Some people like the mylar, some don't. I tend towards the don't like it.
The REV I vented and the Sedgwick vented do fly a bit different because of the venting shape and placement.
What do I recommend? I recommend that you try the different REV I's out and choose the one you prefer.

I would go with John on the fly what you like best.

And if you can always try B4 you buy.

Pretty much any field of Rev fliers will give you a go on the handles if you ask.

Even if you dont ask a lot of the time.

If you get one let us know what you get and how you get on.

Wish you lot would stop this... I spent the whole afternoon with my cursor hovering over the 'Add to Cart' button on Kiteworld !! Was thinking of a vented one but might just take the one off the back of my progressive and spend some time with it first.... I just love the retro look of the Sedgwick :confused!:

I'm really torn after flying Baloo's "hot" colours Sedgwick at Portsmouth rev clinic ;)

It was lovely and surprising that the large standard sail didn't have me running across the field.
(I always thought I'd go for the cool colours, :blue-love:
but the hot is so hot on a dull day) :wub:

I wonder what you'll chose ?

And what about the vented one Choccy, was it sort of hot, but cool at the same time?

Sorry Jonesey, you should have tried mine out at Portsmouth.

Then again there were so many kites to try wernt there?

So true on all counts Baloo :)
Vented sails are always sweet.

Jonesey was too busy being dragged around the field at the time with his power stack :lol:

I love the vented Sedgewick,but JBs blue fade i snagged a while ago, just nicks it for looks and awsomeness[is that a real word]

PUSH THE BUTTON JONESEY,heres why ya should.

On Low wind days we fly all four of our Hot Sedgewicks in team.The routine we planned to do at Sunderland[sadly couldnt].We had timed to a T with the 1.5s.
We then flew the same routine with the Sedgewicks and it took a week longer to fly.
Well,about 15 seconds more,but the point is,ther so kewl and look so much better when thers a bunch of um.

So,in theory,A Sedgewick keeps you and gets you flying for longer.

This may be :offtopic: so please forgive.

I flew a Sedgwick for the first time a couple of days ago, and I was supprised how heavy the kite was in the air compaired to my 1.5 SLE, and I still use the SLE spars for heavy wind, but for light wind dont even think of trying to fly the Sedgwick.

Not puting the kite down, but could not believe the weight.

Just my one sent worth.
