Ended up getting a Naish Fly for light wind. Demoed a few others, then just went w a last years FLY. Its pretty impressive, I can ride in 8 -11 knots…At 14-16 knots I am way overpowered. I weight 170ish...Finally took out GoPro other day….Tried to have the GoPro video our local anemometer afterwards, & the guy at our local spot confirmed 8-11 knots. You can see it relaunch in this vid. and when I crash, board goes nowhere…super light conditions. Big board, & small board, its got power.
Full disclosure.. I tried to launch it in 5-7 knots the other day... did not happen…I feel any light wind kite really needs 8…
fwiw:

What bar and line lenght are you using? Are these 24 meter lines? And what is the high-end of this kiet for you? And last is this the 2014 model?

It's a nice kite. I have the 2012-13 version, first gen. But I need 10 knots to get going on Florida chop with a Stylus 145. And I'm 150lbs. Really start having fun with 12knots and a shorter board. I used to ride a Cabrinha Tronic 140 That was a fun board for this kite.

I keep it up to 15-16knots. Turns fast for a 15m.
I use it with 20m lines when I'm lit. Or put the 10m extensions to make them 30m long when it's light.

Yes, the one in the video is a 2014.

This one is the second generation Blue, the original was green. The newer one has a thinner leading edge I guess? I am using 24 meter lines, as I find that this kite and most kites turn too slow with 27 and 30 meter lines. 24 is the sweet spot for me.
