I really do feel for you having the tear.
I fly often, and to date I have had no problem with any of my Rev kites or lines.
I fly all my kites well within it's wind range reducing the chances on any rips and most importantly I avoid gusty winds.
If the winds happen to be gusty within the wind range, I would consider using my vented 1.5

Rev kites are well made and if looked after should last you a long time.

As for snapping rods, I have yet to snap one, then again I do all my spins well above ground, avoiding the chance of hitting the outer LE which would likely snap in this event. I tend to play safe rather than be sorry, which in turn rewards me with countless hours of fun with little chance of any disasterous mishap. At least if something does happen, I can say I tried my best to avoid it.

If money was no obect, or I was sponsored, I would certainly take more risks and would probably have a few destroyed kites by now, but unfortunatly that is not the case, so I treat my kites with utmost care.

Treat your Rev with Love and respect and you will be well rewarded with years of fun and exhiliration.

The same Rev I bought back in August of last year, my very 1st Revolution kite - Red, White and Black("Midnight') I ordered mine with all cloth sail (no mylar) though.
It's a FANTASTIC kite and got me totally hooked on Revs.
I now have the following Rev kites in my bag acquired over just 7 months:

1st. Rev - 1.5 SLE "midnight" all sail
2nd. Rev - 1.5 vented custom.- Black, Purple and Aqua (my personal favorite)
3rd. Rev - 1 Sedgewick "Cool"
4th. Rev - Supersonic - Gold, Rasberry and Blue
5th. Rev - 1.5 SUL custom rainbow
6th. Rev - Supersonic vented - New assemetrical Gold/Black - (on order due to arrive 1st. week in May)

Wishlist: Rev Blast
Rev Baressi series
Rev Masterpiece
Rev Bag

Your journey into the exhilirating world of Revolution kites has just begun. :)

BE WARNED!!, unless you get your spouse involved (if you happen to have one), your relationship WILL be put to the test - Been there, done that and bought the T-Shirt, which I still wear to this day ;)
