lol you should have put a wind range in those stats.
I think main thing to boost over 10/12 m is you need to be quite powered. like more than 25 knots on 12m, more than 35 knots on 9m, more than 40 knots on 7m.
Some dude just did 22m jump in France flat water spot i think wind mid 40 gusting 50 or more, on 7m.

1. Zian Hantu 9m 2016
Edit.: I´m not willing to change to a real "boosting" kite like the Edge or Rebel since I´m also very much into Kiteloops
what's zian hantu, googled it but looks like it just came out.
I am same as you move to C kite to learn kiteloop but now that I have technique right I am considering getting maybe some hybrid to get a bit more hangtime and less bar pressure. I don't think i would like the feel of a boosting kite though, I like too much how the power builds up when you send it.
1) best GP 9m
2) i think my record was more than one year ago so on fone trax 135 carbon but I have nobile fifty/50 which is a bit slower now.
4) 10m: my good day is 25 knots on 9m so not super powered but fun for kiteloop. I wish there was more wind ;(
5) late 2014
for boosting big, I think the best GP 9m really need more that 35 knots, in 30 knots I don't really get yanked up, it's still pretty smooth.
Since I have been working on kiteloop I rarely go out super powered, should be rigging my 12m more often but having more fun on 9m medium power. I am kind of missing the powered session, maybe I should just get a 10 or 11. not sure, I feel like I haven't had any 30+ session in more than one year ;(
star sirius 12m
Once I went out with 12m in 15knots and wind went up quickly to 45 knots. boosted when it was in upper 20 before I bailed out, woo didn't register jump I kind of got lofted mid jump, was probably one of my biggest boost.
I think I go about 10m on 25 knots day. but rarely go out with 12m in those condition.
