If you are referring to ease of learning, you are better off with a 1995 or later REV 1.5.
The REV I has the tendency to flip it tips in opposite direction while learning.
The REV II is too quick for easy learning.
I learned on a REV I because it was the only REV on the market when I learned.

Can you be a bit more specific which models you are referring to of the REV I and the REV II?
From the top of my head I can count off at least 6 models of the REV I in the 1990s and another 6 for the REV II.

What you are referring to are the REV I Classic and the REV II Basic made between 1989(1990 for the REV II) and 1996.
If they are both in equally good condition, I would choose the REV I. It was also the more expensive of the two.

I would chose both, and sell my last Kidney to get them. But I have allways been a greedy :kid_devlish:

I do love those solid colour Rev 2's, however if they were both in the same condition I would agree with John.
