I did the 17M,19M, 25M kites....back when they were truly dangerous.
15 Meter is bigger than I want to fly anymore.....19-21 not even a consideration.
If I lived in a place where I had to fly the real monsters all the time, I would give up kiting or move to better winds.
You should really go find that Andy of Mayberry episode.
I think that you would be very interested in seeing Barney Fyfe do his stuff.
Very familiar performance.
I'm sure you would find it enlightening and entertaining.

This video is a much better promotion for the Infinity, 15-22 knots (aka 9-13 knots ) is where this kite is probably really good in my opinion This whole promotion of it as an ultra light wind kite was a mistake in my opinion, but at the end of the day everyone makes mistakes
I disagree there. 9 knots on the infinity for me would be overpowered. I've been snow kiting on an earlier version (v2) and its not the kite for me because there would be such a short range. I had it flying in about 6 knots....my guess... The 13 wouldn't stay stable, and would back stall, but the infinity launched ( side launch, not hot) and stayed stable at 12. For me... If it will stay stable, I can ride. Once I got the kite moving and up to speed, I could stay upwind. But again, I can use my 13 starting at about 8-9 knots, so I wouldn't buy the infinity for that extra knot or so.
But in 10 knots, I might be able to hold it down....12 knots, no way, tht thing has a lot of pull. Would be ideal for big guys.
