All I know is:
1) Inflatable kites are not as good as foils in lightwind.
2) All the 17m inflatables start working pretty much at the same time all are good from about 10 knots to have some fun. But if you care about real light wind you should get a foil
3) Most of the claims on this forum for low wind are anecdotal and really shouldn't be believed
If you want an inflatable I'd suggest getting what's cheap and available around you as all modern 17m's will have a range where it's usable up until your 12-11m. The bottom ends are pretty much the same, within a knot or so. It's not like you'll be going huge in 10 knots, it's more about just getting out there in my opinion.
If you're serious about ultra lightwind kites get a chrono or other huge foil, they've got the best low end.
