I read with a lot of interest on the other thread about the new Revolution Zen that is supposed to come out of the Rev workshop in due time. As echoed by many, its pretty frustrating and not a whole ton of fun gaining and losing ground in low wind with a B-Series STD with Race Rods after a while.
Like many out there too who's into using the B-Series more for precision, the preferred kite of choice would be a vented as opposed to a STD due to the much smoother and more forgiving flight characteristics, given a desired wind speed.
So hence, my question is that - does it make the B-Series standard obsolete in a sense? In say probably 1mph – 4,5mph you can fly the Zen. Anything more would be Mid Vent territory from what I read (I don't own a Mid Vent but I've heard about its minimum low wind range to be 3mph and above). Say I want to be able to fly full window precision with maximum drive and load from anywhere from 1mph to 12 mph, would a Zen + Mid Vent (with the appropriate rods of cos) be sufficient?
