I've heard that too, but "channel the wind a bit better" is meaningless.
I don't know that I've ever heard anyone really quantify the difference.

Good point Allen!
Thats probably the reason both of mine are standard 1.5's also.

Next time out with my buddy, i'll accept his offer to fly the JB series and see if i can quantify any real difference for us.  Wink

What you need to do is have the same frames/lines/handle setting in each kite and fly both and then have a friend fly both while you stand downwind. You will see if the B has a deeper sail billow than the SLE or not.

I was looking to replace my standard duallie with the rev was my idea. I just thought the rev would be a little less work out on the knees and so forth. Thanks for all the input and if anyone has one they are will ing to part with let me know Tongue
