Wondering why the lithium 14m LW never gets a mention in these posts. 8 to 18 knots, for a lighter rider, all you need with the right board selection. We always talk about the 17m, etc, but with a sector and a lighter rider surely this is an option? What about the big mama also, not mentioned. ? Always the fat lady, zephyr the edge etc.

I think requester requested information on 4 different kites (original post). Probably because the availability at his kiting region. Otherwise I'd have replied that Speed3 15m kicks ass of North Dyno 16m and as wind picks up Dyno turns big quite early. And in that wind (8kn and up) and light rider you could even use Speed3 12m DLX. But it was not asked :)
