Which kite will work better in the 10 to 15 knot range.

well, i havent't testet the hydro or ab (2002)...

but i'm shure that the airblast has more power in light winds.

the impressions i heard about these two kites where:
airblast:
water-relaunch is impossible (10m airblast), but the best kite the rider's ever had.
incredible jump-height and hangtimes.

hydro:
water relaunch goes by itself - absolutely no problem to get it out of the water - a real good handling - but a bit less performance than the ab.
