No idea about the low end of the speed 4 21m but think you can't go wrong with either. I would say from what I see the flysurfer would last you longer and more durable but you won't jump as high if all things being equal. It would be a coin toss for me. Only thing is maybe the 18 Chono turns faster and jumps higher. Maybe. All I can say is I am very happy with my purchase of the 18m Chrono and never flew anything like it ever. I also baby my foil kites so will not be crashing it into the water much.
Okinawa Kiter, Good honest review
I understand your frustration and I went through the same the way you're going through.
In light wind under 10 knots it is really difficult to get the accuracy of motive pulling power factor,
how lo can you go in humid, dry or cold weather environment with lapse rate observation
Just saying, because I used to fly hangliders and the last one is an important factor IMHO.
Besides that when I compare the my wind reading against others usually they're Off at least 1 - 2 knots
That's why I've been using the Davis WindScribe ultrasonic wind meter for 6 years
which uses ultrasonic sensor technology and No Moving parts to cut the BS for high accuracy
