The 8.7 is projected which means 12 something flat, they say that the kites are a size more powerful this year (i.e) the 8.7 is comparable to last years 10something

My Personal experience is that my 11.9 or 16something flat has no more lower wind range than my 12.2 black tip did

The AMP is now labeled both ways.
The end of the kite says 11.9 and 16.2 flat area.
multiply the lower number by 1.36 to get the flat area.
