I have an x2 size 16 and I love it (im 86 Kg. surf on Jervis )my other kite is Airush 9.4 lift . my prob was when the wind blow more then 20-22 Knots I couldnt hold the X2 and I use my Airush then the wind peekup 2 25-27 and I was with over power with the airush .

Depends on how often you have really heavy winds.
If you have all kinds of wind, and you never will buy a third kite - go for the X2 10.

If you "maybe" some day will add a high wind kite, and you prefer going out in the lower winds - go for the X2 12 (as this is a size you will just love... But it overlaps the 16) !

well it seems obvious to me that U got a gap in yr quiver
and so you need a medium size sheet too.
Cheers!

I use the X2 12m as my main kite.. I'm 75kg and use an underground 141cm lunchtray. I can hold the X2 to 25 knots and perhaps a bit more in the right conditions. This is with 30m lines. As for top end vs 8.4 AB (2001 i'm assuming?) it's not as high. I can handle more wind with an 8.4 AB and that was my first time using the kite, not even full depower.

BLOWN AWAY
