When the 1.5 was introduced I couldn`t stand them......too much of a compromise between the 1 and the 2 I thought...at the time. Took a couple of years....and many revs...to come to appreciate the 1.5 size and generally one of it`s models is the first out of the bag.... They are my "workhorses" but when a 1 does come out it makes it even more special.
My 1`s always will be my faves!!! I have 3....2 Sedgewicks and a classic. Was going to get a Zen but spent the loot on some BMK dualies before they were no longer being made.....the 1 w/2wraps will suffice for now.
thanks for the help. i'll have to give kent (awoc) a call and pick-up a different frame or two for this. i went through the same problem with my 1.5 rev, now i have four 1.5 s and every frame for it. what an addiction. tim from pittsburgh
Well there ya go.....now you'll have to get another 1 or two....what the hey.....might as well get a couple of 2's as well.
I would love to get a Zen but in the last year I've been on a classic old school dualie kick....but did snag a "mini" Sedgewick 2 with a 2 wrap travel frame very recently....mmmm noodles for dinner again!!!
I have 3 Rev 1`s and I really like an SLE in my (self)vented Rev 1. Not so much in a regular sail....but still ok. For those I have a 2 wrap and race frame set for one, and a regular 4 wrap in the other.
The stiffness of the SLE (in the vented) in higher winds keeps it manageable for me. In lower to non existant winds I like the flex of the 2 wrap or race frames.
I may be wrong but generally the naysayers to SLE`s....myself included...are directed at 1.5`s. I tried an SLE in both a vented 1.5 and a regular sail and ugh....no thanks!! The larger sail of the 1`s seem more condusive to an SLE imho.
However....don`t stop there....get a 2 wrap or a race frame as well
