I haven't flown the Deca 6, so can't comment on that.

I have flown full vented Revs and would totally recommend them for higher winds.

For the wind range you stated, the full vented Rev should be perfect.

If the wind gets really big, there is always the Mega-Vent:

I'm a dual line flier until the wind goes over 15mph. The vented Rev 1.5b is all I fly once the wind gets bigger than that. I've flown it in up to 30mph wind without a problem, and still having fun.

Here's what my flying spot looks like when the winds are around 15mph...

I prefer my Rev 2s in higher winds.  They can also handle winds above 20 mph easily.

Best quad depends on you preference levels for speed, pull, precision, and solo or team flying. A list of names doesn't do much good, unless you know how the other guy's preferences compare to yours.

This is like the extravent? I'd like that extra 5mph or more I'd hope.

Another vote for the Rev 2 from me. 
Quick and light-pulling.  Lots of fun!

Steady winds, y'all.

Thanks guys.
One final question, has anyone flown the polo rev vent? All I see is an edited post.
Like the look but is it worth it? No one has one near here that I can tell.
