hmm, your 8.4 starts at around 16-17 knots, so you want a kite that overlaps a bit, so you can't go to a 20, A 18 x2 is very similar in characteristics/size to the 11.8 AB, and you should be able to take it up to 20 knots ok, start at 10..
or a 16m Rhino II, or 18m Aero II ( same characteristics as X2, front line flyer, quick turning, huge lift, don't like to be oversheeted, just ever so slightly lower aspect..)

Funny you ask about AB Scoop And mach1 and they reply X2 North Gastraa...Humm
Well the more powerfull is surely the 12 scoop it's the bigger one ... and will be perfect with your 8.4 AB also quite similar way of flying ... mach 1 is different and may be confusing having one AB and one mach1 will go for the 18 to complete the 8.4 AB better than the 15.1 that will have big overlap ...
