Hello Spencer, (This is Steven from WSIKF) I just bought a vented Barresi for myself and I am thrilled with it in wind over 8mph or so and have flown it in winds over 20 and it's very controllable and is very responsive. Although I haven't tried it with the weights yet I understand that they assist with tricks, not so much with flying the kite. The idea with regular flying is to keep it light so a light frame might be a good investment instead of weights. Hope to see you at Longbeach, keep flying! Steven (St.Even)

I can tell you how I make a decision like this. Weights are very cheap. Vented maga bucks. Get the cheap weights. Later when you get a vented you can use the weights with the vented too. ;)

OK got a B and a V B. The vented is FANTASTIC, if the wind is low I put the SUL frame in it if the wind is high, highest I hace tried a B V in was about 45 mph put in a 3 and 4 wrap leading edge.

Vented flies better than full sail in gusty wind. I live inland in UK wins are nearly allways gusty.

If I could only have 2 kites it would be the 2 B's.

Dont know what your wind is like Watty, Go for a B, comes with 2 + 3 wrap frames and some weights etc if wind is gusty get the V which comes with 4 wrap only (think this is right)

To be honest, I've spent next to no time playing with the weights, sooooo far.

Ant, I'll discourage you from talking about making and selling a Rev product on the Rev forum.

Nothing stopping you from making the weights or selling them (not patented), but they are a Rev product when discussed here.
