The Ski-doo revs were more rider-forward in design, so your legs are bent more and ready to stand up at a moment's notice. The f6 and f7 by Arctic Cat were still somewhat rider-forward, but compared to the revs are more conventional. The revs and f-series are both great trail sleds, but can't really do any other kind of riding.

I off trail rode my firecat all the time until i got my snopro. They dont do that bad unless you let off. You can put a 1.7'' track from a race sled on it and they do pretty well. Trench a little bit yes but they arent horrible. They arent a mountain sled by any means. But you CAN do other riding with them.

As for reliability, they are very reliable, mine has 5700 miles on it and it still runs strong! They are fast too!

Well then you'll definitely want a rider forward sled. A rev will serve you well.
