Can you compare the big FS speeds to your current lei Toby. What advantage does the lei give you?

I don't test enough to compare it.
But in general I can say that the FS hang the best and have a great lift. 19 and 21 turn slower, which is a problem with kiteloops for Jesus Walks etc, so here LEI have an advantage.
