well, if the fuel's the 2002 model, you already got a very powerful kite.

IMHO i'd call it luxury if you have a kite above 16m (when you're about 75kg)

i've seen guys round 85kg still riding when i got in with my airush lift 12.2...

but face it:
riding a kite bigger than 16m is not too much fun.
so, if you're using 22 - 16 - 12 - 8, you'll switch to the 16m kite as soon as possible.

i've seen a few kites riding in winds below my range ... ok seemed:

north rhino 22.5 (with shortened lines around 20-25m)

f-one mach1 18.1

wipika freeair 16

flysurfer mastair 16.

when you got your quiver, you should matter about the low end.
and there, the flysurfer is standing alone in the field.
the only kite that restarts far under 10 knots
the only kite that rides upwind in measured 7knots with a small TT.

Murdoc, the 20 X2 is great fun!! Completely different feeling for a huge kite.
