Hey my pleasure. I just like to ride..and it makes me talkative. Poor guys at the beach.
the 14 10 8 combo is magic for sure.
On the 6 Bolt. I have ridden it pretty low, I'd venture a guess and say maybe 25 mph for solid full on power, and I really have no idea what the top end is. The kite literally never been overpowered. I have been the only one out in solid 30-35+ mph, and nuking gusts quite a bit higher..I mean I do not exactlyu know what the wind was but pretty wild and the kite loves it. Just note that when it blows those winds here it is never a steady nuking pull...it is stormy direction changing, gusty..lulls of almost nothing and then nuking gusts that changes the direction of the wind...
The Bolt's only Achilles heel would be turning speed, but anything below the size 9 turns plenty fast...the 6 is obviously more than fast enough.
Definitely a kite that has some overlap with the 8, but once you feel it might be a little too much for the 8 park..pump up the 6 and have a laugh.
