    Ned,

    I have just purchased 4 of the new Revos. The main difference is in the pads; the surface area is a little larger, everything else is pretty much the same. One thing to be aware of is if you have a rack made for the old style and they fit nice and snug so you can get as many as possible in one space then the new Revos will quite possibly just not quite fit, the pads will overlap. Otherwise price is the only real concern.

    I have two 60" units, so I'm really looking for at least a couple of smaller ones, I might just try the Revos though. hmmmm
