I like my 2011 13m in 20 - 25 knots . . . I'm flyyyyyyiiiiiiiing!!!

For light wind - trim the kite so it doesn't back stall but you're right, there comes a time when there's just not enough wind to fly the damned thing.

If one was to replace the Crossbow 13m, would you choose a 14 or 12m Switchblade?

Yep.

Flew a 2014 SB 12 today and it was frustrating in how the power just dropped right off at the bottom end. Great when it's on-the-boil but frustrating when the wind's not there...
