Goes from "meh." to "woohoo!" just like that. But either way, both the SB and the XB are slooooow in the 16 meter size. The infinity looks quite zippy for a kite that size, which should prove to be good for generating power.
Yeah, I know the switch feeling
The Infinity IS a very zippy kite, certainly faster than the XB...

I think since most of my riding is in waves off the beach, the bit of rocker it has suits me. If I was riding a flat board, it would probably not be very fun in chop. or be able to handle the curve while launching me off the top of small waves. The only flat water spot near me is Tampa Bay, about 45 minutes drive, so that only happens if the wind coincides with a weekend.
Any rocker is death to light wind
I use the Flydoor and Flyradical - both have almost no rocker - in all conditions. They work good enough for me, even if they take a bit of adapting to.

Must have slipped on the keystroke but I still don't think they're 6m long
half that maybe... perhaps a meter or so longer than rear leaders off LEIs?
21's usually come with 6m extension too. If he had those on (hope he did cos IMHO the 21 blows on 21m lines) then it'd be 27m + bridles...
