you'd need probably both to cover their very different wind ranges, heck there might even be a kite in-between these two

I don't have the spider but do own an XX

Except for wind range the differences between the two are quite subtle. Without many, many hours of experience you most probably would be hard pressed to tell the difference. A Rev flies like a Rev. Changes in bridling, panel layout, frame selection, sail material, leading edge mesh and a multitude of other things change the characteristics slightly, but not enough to force one to relearn the game. Once you can fly a Rev you can pretty much fly any Rev, assuming sufficient wind for the model you want to fly. Not really something to agonize over when you're just starting out. My recommendation for all beginners is to get a standard (not vented) sail and stay well within the recommended wind range until you have mastered basic control. Of course, nobody does this, and therefore it takes longer to learn but you do have more fun and sometimes frustration.
