The smaller REV II Basic was introduced. It had all the hardware characteristics of the REV I of 1989. The sail was a single piece thus being a single color. There were numerous sail colors and logo colors and mixtures there of. The bridle was setup for control lines of equal length. The standard rods, were three wrap carbon fiber which had an outer ferrule. Since the Rev II was smaller with much less pull then the Rev l, 50 pound line was chosen. Since this weight line is very delicate, Kevlar was chosen to improve the line durability. This REV II Basic series with the same logo design was produced through 1996.
The smaller REV II was also introduced in the classic panel layout being similar to the REV I classic. The hardware was the same as the REV II basic. Both Black and Blue logos were known to exist in this series. This REV II Classic series was produced from 1990 through 1996. There were quite a number of color combinations manufactured.
The REV II Rainbow was introduced. There was a number of color combinations produced. Logos were all black except for maybe one case where a pre-production version owned by Felix Mottram had a red logo. The REV II Rainbow series was produced through 1996.
(the only one is possessed by Felix Mottram)
The first REV II vented was introduced. It is based off the REV II rainbow design. There is one large vent on each side replacing the second panel from the right. Apparently very few were made.
The REV II Neo-Classic went into production, The Neo-Classic had similar panels to the REV I Neo-Classic from the same year. It was also available in a SUL version similar to the 1992 REV I SUL differences. The center panels where all white with black logo. This was only produced in 1997.
A REV II Neo-Classic vented was also produced, though somewhat rare. The color were apparently the same with exception of the panel that the vent replaced.
The REV II basic was available with the NEW logo. It is not clear whether it actually went into production as apparently only two pre-production versions have been seen recently. There were also several more in a photo for the 1997 brochure. If produced, it would have probably been only in 1997.
A REV II A-Symetric was produced in 1997 and it is a rare one. It is not clear whether more than one was ever produced. This one is owned by Daryld Gutierrez.
It was mention from 2003 through 2006 that there would be a special offering for the REV II. In 2007 the REV II rainbow (now Sedgwick) standard was again in production. This one had the same layout as the 1991 REV II rainbow, but with different colors and the new logo introduced in 1997. It was available at least through 2009, maybe later.

In 2008 the REV II a three leading edge was added. This made the REV II more compact and easier to transport. This later became the standard production leading edge for the REV II. Previously with the two piece leading edge, the packed up REV II was longer then the packed up REV I.
A new panel layout for the REV II was introduced in 2009. This panel layout is similar to REV 1.5 panel layout started in 2004. All center panels are white with a black logo.
This year a totally new REV II model was introduced called the "John Baressi REV B2". It retains the same width as the original REV II. It is a bit taller. There are now 5 rods versus the original REV II 4 rods. All rods are the same length.
Basically speaking the B2 is a scaled down version of the "REV 1.5 John Baressi". The shape and panel layout is identical to the "REV 1.5 John Baressi".
