I only have 12 kites, 9 are Revs or Rev type. The B's are just fantastic with the different frames and the vented more and more they are "the right kite" I often put one of the other makes up and think "I wish I had put up a Rev instead"
Still enjoy the others, trying to come to terms with your Fanatic Ben, best Delta I have owned seems best for me in light winds.
There is a Rev to suit ALL winds, 45 mph gusts with John in Blackheath, London down to almost nothing with a B SUL. Not got my head round NO wind yet though.
As Ben says, all you need to do is fly the kite that puts the smile on your face, and maybe push yourself a bit if that is for you. If not just chill.
Above everything flying should be FUN, the more folks want to try my handles the more FUN I have. The more folks will buy Revs hopefully which will let Ben go mAd again some time soon.

The wind was really blowing but as this was going to be Christine,s first time with a rev i put my SLE up. Well as you can imagine the wind was too much for the SLE so i put the vented EXP up and what a difference the venting made.
It was only my second time i had flown the EXP after i had modified it to a vented rev and it was much smoother and really smoothed out the gusts that we get in Yorkshire.
Anyway,i rather trepidly handed my rev over and after i told her how to launch and what to do when one side went up , i let her have her first go.
I was amazed to see her just take off and hold a hover about ten foot up.
She did of course wobble about a fare but but she did really good ,to say it was her first time.
So my point is, a vented rev really does make a big difference in high winds and im very pleased with my modification.
And the grin on Christine,s face when i told her she did well was worth a million pounds.
