4m + 5m can work really well. Think +25%.
The smaller the kites the closer they can be in size to make sense.
Enduro 4m is an amazing high end kite.

Cheers

:thumb: I have 3/4/5/6 and 8m kites. 3 to 5m is a huge gap. Even 3 to 4m is a little too big in my opinion, 3.5 to 4m would be better. 4 to 5m is perfect. Offcourse this can vary if you mix brands and models.

Okay, thanks. That makes sense from a % of square footage perspective. I have a 10m and 7m, which is about a 30% gap, and there isn’t a lot of overlapping range. (I know 10m/7m description isn’t 100% accurate, but I get the idea.)

Any intel on the Uno 4m?
