Really looking forward to his video

Ok I'm back and here is what I have to say:
Just to make it clear I'm very selective what I'm testing for light winds
and if there is really any benefit over what I already have.
I never drop my 21m in the water…I happened only once in 2 years.....
My FS 21 was just glued to the sky last Sunday in 4 Kn, even if it's not enough to ride,
but it was enough to body drag for half an hour until it came back to probably 5 - 7 knots.
So there is no point to test or buy another kite until I know for sure,
if there is a better design, much lighter weight, perhaps faster and more pulling power with a smaller kite.
And that's the reason I said;
"I'm going to send the 17m 4.5 lbs Strutless against my 21m and see what happens"
In my opinion today pretty much all Inflatables designs are good
and there isn't much radical difference between Brands since the Bow Revolution
@frankm1960, I don't think you should wait on me
but maybe you should develop a light wind skill yourself like Dimitri in 2 - 4 kn SUP-ing
and prove it for yourself and everybody it can be done with your weight
The reason is It's You Not Me;
Because my testing value and creditability doesn't count and doesn't mean sh!t here
Because I'm light weight 130 lbs, that's why
According the experts on KF here and from the past
