I gotta admit, the idea of being on a kite 2-4m smaller than anyone else is attractive.
Add to that the fact that you can relaunch there Pulse 2s in seconds and without taking your hands off the bar most of the time.
I have a six meter and can ride it well powered up in 30mph on a 138 twin tip or a 5ft 1inch directional and I weigh 225lbs dry (add full wetsuit, helmet, impact vest and seat harness).
It's a rocket fast kite, very fast turning, BUT not nervous.
I also like the simple "no drag" launch even when the sand is blowing knee high.
Here is a little bit of video that shows how fast and responsive the Pulse 2s are.
It's just a few momments of flight the vry first time I put them in the air so I was not
throwing them around as fast as they can go.
The little blue kit is the 6m ( I was underpowered a bit)
The Red kit is the 8m
The other kites were 10m and 12m, but keep in mind I am at least 40lbs heavier than the others
in the shots
