I am considering a new 12m hyperlink. Frank have you got any experience with this size. I already have a 8m cabrinha apollo and a 12m apollo. I am too scared to take out the 12m apollo in light winds at our local spot where we have a very strong outgoing tide that takes you straight out in the ocean over a very nasty bar. I love the feeling of the apollo. Featherlight bar pressure. Just about impossible to get the 12m up again in very light wind.

Yes, I have used the 12m Hyperlink and can say that it would be my choice for the conditions you describe.
Currently I do not have one in use as I jump from the 9m HL to bigger R1, but for dodgy light wind conditions the HL would be my preference again.
It keeps flying in very light winds and chances to relaunch are quite good in winds when tube kites may not even fly or at least are close to impossible to get back up out of the water again.
This I can say from my own experience about the regular version. Then there is also an UL version available.

Cheers,
Frank

it seems there are 3 really good foil kites for marginal wind, priced about the same, and not being racefoilkites:

Ozone Hyperlink Ultralight.
Conceptair Pulsion Light.
PANSH Aurora II.

Anybody dare to take a shot at the differences ?
Also weight, if anyone got a clue, compared :D

Pansch 12 costs 569 usd complete. But China direct, so not a fair comparison

I do not have personal experience but I was under impression that A15 from Pansh would be better fit for marginal wind than Aurora 2?

I have no idea. The Aurora is higher aspect.
