yeah theres a weak point of the rev......it won't fly in zero wind...!!
Just got my 15m rev to replace a 15m fuel and haven't had the wind to try it yet ..hopefully on tuesday.
As to depower rope: yes it'll wear but wash and wax it regularly and it'll last for much longer than other brands i've had.
My 07 bar ropes havelasted just under 12 months without major wear but i have now changed both as a matter of course. (maintenance) easy to do too with a screwdriver.
Have just had both bars renewed on warranty due to the metal insert wearing which is fantastic of slingshot....other brands should take note.
Anyway the rev looks great, big beefy front lines and nice compact bridle. seems to have the slingshot build quality.
looking forward quite nervously to see how the rev's safety and relaunch system goes as i do love the 5th line
The 15 is the bench mark for me as if its a fast kite to fly and performs well i may well go for a 11 rev as well....but at the mo' the rev has to live up to the fuels performance so for now i'm keeping my 11-9-7 07 fuels..
