I am currently riding older ('08,'09) Slingshot REV kites. I have a 9m, 11m, and 13m. I absolutely love riding these kites and they are still in very good shape for their age. I am having to do some minor repairs on the bridles and bladders. So I'm wondering what current kites (or more recent models) would best match the characteristics of the Slingshot REV. Looking for all and every suggestion and doesn't necessarily have to be a kite from Slingshot. Thanks for the input!!

I think most of todays allrounders would be a step up. It's been a decade. Pivot, Bandit, Raptor, Orbit, Rebel, Razor, Edge, Lithium, RS, XR6, Switchblade, NV and a few others.

The designer of the REV now runs a factory that produces DSD Deliriums in the Philippines . They'd be from the same guy.

Worth emailing them, he sells factory direct pretty cheap I'm told.
