So, 10-30 I'd say 8 and 15. But that means that you're going to ride the best wind (15-20) always with the "wrong" sail. Imo it depends on the real average wind of your home spot, first choice is for the most common wind range. In my home spot we have 90% 10-15, no sense to buy a Soul 8 for 10 days a year, I'd better buy a second hand pump 7 or 9 for big days and a 12/15 Soul quiver.

Obviously there is a shorter window - but when your in higher winds it doesn't matter if you lose a bit here or there, you've got plenty of wind.
Once parked or mid jump, not much difference if you have everything in perfect trim.

The specs of the 9m is very interesting.
Same front to back as the 10m and not much difference in width to the 8m.
Closer built to the 8m I think. With a bit more bottom end ?

Yea all the Souls are difference aspect ratios which is why they all fly differently. The 8m has been the favorite of many so FS decided to use the same AR as the 8 but space out the size a little more.

Last year I was riding the 10 and 15 M on twintip with 94 kg. I was starting to have fun from 11 knots with a Door on the 15m and used to Soul 10 from 20-35 knots.
This year I started to hydrfoil so I am using 12-9 combo. The 12 M starts me from 5-6 knots on a foil and changing to a door TT from 12 knot and changing it to small twintip from 15 knots of wind. The 9m Soul starts on a foil from 8-9 knots and so on...
The 12-9 combo might be a very good one as well if you are 75 kg. Fort the one kite set up I would go for the 10 meter and you should be able to cover the 14-30 knots on a regular TT and you can cover 7-14 knots with a hydrofoil.

I would buy the 9 or 10 if you like better landing in high winds. You have to be super juiced on the 8 to get soft landing like you get on the 10. I think the 10 bridges the gap better with the 15. You will have and obvious hole in the 20 -25 knot range. Sure you can fly the 15 in 20 knots, but at your weight it is at the top-end. You can also ride an 8 in 20 knots, but jumps will be small. If you were looking for 30 to 35 knots on your high end, I would recommend the 7 or 8.

I personally like the 10 out of all of my Soul Kites. It is playful, rips you off the water, yet is still so floaty.
