i am replacing my 15m edge as well. looking at wainman boss, big mama, and 13m cloud.
how well does the cloud do in mid to upper teens? whats the sweetspot?
how much wind does it take to keep it in the air? better than the edge? sometimes our wind drops to 5 on light wind days for a few minutes at a time.
does the kite feel like a "big" kite? some 13m kites do and some don't. definitely the 15m edge feels huge and slow turning. looking for a nimble light wind performer.
I'm 150lbs, so for me sweet spot is 10-12kts. Around 15kts becomes too much for me.
Takes very little wind to keep it in air. You can literally walk and keep it flying in no wind. It is definitely an apparent wind kite. In under 8kts you don't feel power until you get going. Definitely will stay flying in lot less wind than the 15 Edge, even down to 5.
It's way faster than the edge, for me it's as fast as a 10. The Edge goes upwind a little better, but it's a straight line kite, turning it feels like a truck, where the Cloud feels light and nimble.
After handling the cloud other big kites feel so heavy and slow that you don't want to go back to them.
The Edge does jump higher and floats longer once you manage to turn it.
