Welcome to the REV Forum!

There is a frame for the EXP which has the thicker rods. It is called the SLE frame. It is just for the leading edge.
You might find someone on this forum that will send you their old SLE rods really cheap as most do not like the frame.
For the EXP there are a number of different frames available. The EXP can use the same frame as all of the REV 1.5 series.
Your EXP frame is unmarked, or should be. These are the Ultra Light 3 wrap rods. There are also 2 wrap for much lighter winds and 4 wrap for very strong winds.
There is also the race rod frame which has, basically speaking, the best of the 2 and 3 wrap frames plus some. It is expensive.

If you search around on this forum you will find all the information you ever wanted to know about the different Revolution Rods.

Welcome to the forum from me too.
What you really need is a vented kite. You will enjoy it in strong winds.
