Most riding done in flat-water, chop, or surf? All. Often chop, though.

Size of product you are commenting on:
11M Rev

Feedback:

What did you like most about the product?
4 line simplicity.
light bar pressure.
quick turning.
easy relaunch.
stable.
below the bar leash point!

What do you think could most be improved on this product?
combine the trim/leash line into a single below the bar line. (like TD1 and Havoc)
(that will get rid of having 3 lines coming down (CL, trim, leash) or SS can
just put the trim back above the bar and only bring the leash down.)

Favorite feature?
my bow calloused hands were loving the REV's light bar pressure. :thumb:
