Hands down the eclipse thruster is the better kite, particularly the 8m. You can loop this thing in 25 knots and come down like lenten. A super kite and id stop short of calling it a C-kite its a true hybrid in my opinion. Im 150lbs and the kite is so fast that im able to ride a 120x38 in 15 knots because the thing creates so much apparant!

I'm the same weight as you, and if you can ride the 8M thruster in 15 -25+, what other Thrusters would you have in a quiver? Do you just need an 8 & 12, or do you need to go bigger for the light air days? Also what's the high end for you on the 8M?
