Whether you had good or neutral or bad with the Link should not change any perception about the Rev. The Rev has everything you liked about the Link, and you can eat your sandwich too...try one...

Hey Ollie,

Do you know if Slingshot is going to design a kite with short bridles?

I've only flown the 9 in 4 line setup. I did have it drop out of the sky at 12:00 on an extremely gusty day (gusting over 30), but for the most part it seems reasonably stable, keeping some tension on the rear lines may keep it from overflying and dropping. Also, I inflate it pretty firm, and that may help. When I've flown it soft it feels less stable. As far as the relaunch goes, I'll sometimes pull in 4-5' of one of the outside lines to get it to stand up, but it seems to relaunch ok. I agree that it does feel like a heavy kite, and in super light winds may be harder to keep in the air than some other kites, but I still really like it.
