The Ozone Hyperlink is one to take a look at.
It has become my go to kite, basically lately replacing R1 and Edge for my personal riding. Which I really did not expect.
Easy, smooth and best water relaunch I ever experienced with any kite.

Cheers,

Whats your ultimate low end wind range for the Hyperlink?
Does it keep in the air at 3-4 knots?
How much time can be on the drink before filling up?

It is stable very early, had one day that I bodydragged around, or actually partly it felt like the kite only kept flying because I was swimming away from shore in marginal onshore conditions.
I was only able to ride like two tacks, but with no other kite I would have been able to keep trying that long.
It dropped backwards twice too, but could pull it up again on frontlines. While swimming.
It was an impressive session, even though not riding really.
Another day I tested water relaunch on purpose and could not make it game over. It also would not drink much.
Yesterday I had a tricky situation in rather light winds on the 9m, then it dropped in wind shadow of a container ship and tangled a bit too. It took two minutes till there was enough wind again to consider relaunching. I did not expect it to be possible. But it worked flawlessly.
Otherwise I would have been rescued by this cool boat:

Was almost a bit sad I didn't need a lift on it ;)
