Baloo, I agree with the 3-stack of Rev 2's. A 3-stack of 1.5's pulls too hard for me (I'm a little guy and too old). But the Rev 2's are a lot of fun. And look great in the sky also.
I agree that vents deal with lumpy wind well.
However I too like the speed and twitchyness of the Rev 2.
I also like the pull of my 3 stack of 2's.
Get a standard I would think, will buck the higher winds just fine, and less of an arm stretching experience in higher wind than the 1.5 full sail.
Think about 50mph is highest wind I have had a 2 up in. Did put 2 leading edges in it though.
Didnt fly it long though.
It popped a bungee through the bottom of the sail, soon fixed though.
