When you get into the smaller size like 9m it's less of an issue so pick the one you like best because there is enough wind to keep it up there even when charging downwind.

I did my share of time with RAM kites on TT and I’m not looking to get them. Got Sonic2 13m to squeeze more from the light wind days but below 8kt it’s hard work, especially when learning transitions, to keep them in air. I got 12m Ultra for it to be my low wind LEI. I must say Sonic2 beats it <10kt but >10kt Ultra is awesome, and I rode it up to 18kt on foilboard (which was not pleasant but doable).
I think I’ll forget about Nexus (mostly thanks to points made by rogue_kiteboarder) and keep my XRs.
Now I’m thinking whether to get Ultra V2 9m or 10m+8m and sell 12m in lue if keeping Sonic2 13m.
I could swap Sonic2 to some other low wind kite as I’m not planing on racing but that’s another story.
I’m 73kg dry. I have Moses Onda and looking to get Fluente. I also have custom made wing but smaller than Onda but similar shape, which I use for learning.
