Hi Hector, as to your ? I felt no difference in performance. In low winds it is even a little softer then a reg vented and in the high winds it seems to be the same as the reg vented.
So I guess you could say I am able to have my cake and eat it to.
I would think as long as you dont make the venting area smaller then the regular set up, it would only make the kite better. I have had a chance to fly Ben's (from Rev) Lattice kite in high winds and was surprised as just how soft it flew. So have fun and create something wild.
for the compliment.
I too so love the look of it.
