I had a Rev for a while and have to say I wasn't very impressed with the quality considering the price. Mine was lightly used secondhand but after a while the mesh started to split ( a common fault) and the edges of the dacron re-enforcing was fraying - nit picking maybe, but at full price these are expensive kites and I would expect better. To be honest I think Revs are better when there are a few of you flying them, on your own I found I soon got bored.
There have been quite a few debates about the Chinese Revs and away from the Rev Police the opinion seems to be that they are not bad - you have to get the right one which I don't remember offhand but there is a big thread about them on FA somewhere. If I was looking I would probably give one a try - I think Broady has a couple of them.
The quad I fancy trying is the Spiderkites Smithi - it's a foil kite but has one way 'valves' in the cells that let it fly very much like a Rev.
