Strapless freestyle - would I benefit from a bigger kite than Neo 10m2?

Postby omg » Sun Aug 06, 2017 7:00 pm

So I have the North Neo 10m2 2017 as my biggest kite for strapless freestyle. I find that I need 9m/s (around 18knots) for grabless tricks (back/front 360). When the wind is lower, I cannot seem to get enough board speed that the mentioned tricks are doable anymore.

Hence the question; would a really fast (board speed wise) kite like SS Turbine or Ozone Edge in 11m size help me to lower the wind limit for training these tricks? These kites should be really efficient, rights and not be too slow to throw aroung, right?
If I could shave off about 1m/s (2knots) from my current low wind limit, I would be happy, but don't know if these kites (or others, please suggest) would do it for me?

Thanks!
