Really curious what you got and which use, guessing small kites for freestyle and bigger kite air style?
it's a tough one and depends on your local condition. I have considered 10m-14m quiver in the past but not really sure now how it will work out, and now that I foil I probably wouldn't do it.
anyway i don't have any advise but here are my local complaints
7: (tried it once underpowered) too small for my local condition which tends to have too much lull and gust.
9M: most used kite but often slightly underpowered, would be better off with a 10m, though I fly C kite which are rare in 10m size, and like to kiteloop so not sure it's good idea ;(
12: nice size but haven't used it that much this year. I have done many 9m sessio where i should probably have been on 12.
14: sweet spot is really narrow for my local condition where wind shift quickly in those light conditions.
foiling: now that i am foiling should probably get some foil kite and get rid of the 14.
new quiver I really want a 10m but then i like to kiteloop the 9m... might be better off with 8m and 10m and just loop the 8m.
1 quiver I would get 10m
2 quiver 8m and 10m
3 quiver 8m, 10m, 12m.
I need some sort of specific kite for foiling though.
