With all the talk lately about progressive stacks and stacking in general, I would like to get feed back on this.

Any thoughts on mixing vented and unvented in a stack of like kites or progressive stacks?

Actually this was discussed in the past somewhere, most likely on this forum.

It works fine! I have done it with both REV Is and REV 1.5s.
Put the vented REVs in front of the non-vented REVs.
What I have NOT tried is a progressive mixture of REV vented and non-vented.

well i would think a mixed stack of vented and std wouldnt make a diffrence then doing a full set of std kites .. now a full stack of vented would be nice to fly due to less pull and better control

Well, you couldn't prove that by me as I was flying in turbulent air when I did it and it flew well.

I think that placing the vented of one size in front of a vented of the same size would be the way to go.
Building up the train with the least amount of wind surface first progressing up the train with the last having the most wind surface.
e.g. REV II V then the NV, REV 1.5 V then the NV, REV I V then the NV.
