I have a B mid vent and am now flying it with 3 wraps. The wind in Atlanta, is generally on the low end of average, so I am anticipating very few days where I can't fly the B with it's present 3 wrap frame. I want to take a couple of trips this summer to the coast, where the wind will likely be much better. Since this will probably be at most, once or twice a year, I don't want to buy a full vent, because it probably would sit in it's case 99% of the time. So my options are having the correct frame for the B MV . Now on the Rev website, they list these rod combinations for the B MV:
3-10 mph (2 wrap frame)
4-16 mph (3 wrap frame)
6-20 mph (3 wrap frame w/2 wrap LE added)
Now I don't have a 2 wrap frame , but I do have a Race Rod frame ( in my 1.5 SLE Std) , so I am thinking I could use the combination of the 3 wrap and the race to get the 6-20 MPH range because I am assuming that the Race and the 2 wrap would be about equal.
Now here is my question, would I be better off just ordering a 4 wrap leading edge set, to have on hand rather than using the 2 sets of rods to get the higher wind capability, and maybe even be able to go a bit beyond 20 MPH if it is gusty? The second part of this question is, since I already have a set of SLE rods, would they be a good substitute for a 4 wrap LE giving me abou the same results, for heavier and or gusty winds? ( I know that if you use SLE rods, you have to use the washers on the end caps, which I already have on hand) .
