So I received my 2021 9m Orbit and it's awesome ! Tested in 17-18kts with 20-22kts gusts.

Faster turning (but I was riding a 10m in 2020) and insane loop recovery. It's really easy to pull KL as you are really confident with this kite.

Cool. I'm leaning hard in the direction of Orbit 2021 myself.

I'm assuming you are quite light weight then? Would have to be one of my main decisions going for an 8 or 9 as the smallest kite. I'm around 100kg so would definitely not be on a 9m in 17-18 knots (either 12 or 14).

I would say 78kg but 80-85 fully equiped. This year I chose a 9m to improve my KL ... but the 10m makes me go higher for sure.
