Accept that the two styles of riding are different and buy four kites ....

2 ultra's for foiling (they work well in light wind, are easy to relaunch and don't turn into a wet piece of tissue paper if drop them in surf, and if you a desperate, do work with a bigger TT but are great with a surfboard in waves).

2 five strut jumping monsters (like Rebels).

רק קלאודים אחשלו 🙃
Clouds or UFOs for foiling and a 9m cheaper used kite for boosting(one that's designed for that) because you don't use it much. 9m will work in 25 knots but won't jump high in 16-17.... so you will need 6m for foiling till 17-18 knots

using one inflatable kite for both isn't so good...
but there's one guy in bat yam that foils with his Soul and then picks up the TT when the wind picks up using the same kite and it works well for him.

I'm looking to cover a wind range of 8-25 knots
8 - 15/16 kt foil , then TT.
All you really need is a single kite, 10m Soul.

yup.
..for a TT and foil.. a 10m soul would be all you need.
(if foiling 100%...switch the TT for a 6m soul and you'd be done)

If foiling is 80+% of your kiting you owe it to yourself to get dedicated kites. Speaking only about free riding:

Peak4 is IMO the best option, followed by strutless and if your lame you can get single strut. 2 kites should do. 6/5 or 5/4 or even 6/4. Those are Peak4 sizes. For tubes....10/7.

Then you need a killer 9m tube. Pivot would be my choice. Can go 9 or 9&7 to cover up to 35 knots.

Boom, done.
Yes I definitely owe it to myself :)

Do you think this setup cover the low wind range , 8-11 knots ?

Yeah I'm starting to except it , but am trying to save place at home and dilemma of which equipment to take to the beach each session 😅

The Peaks pack very small. You could get a 4 5 8 into a normal kite bag..

Your found the flaw in my thinking! Under 10 knots....I think the more economical route is likely to go for a bigger hydrofoil wing than a bigger Peak4. But you could get the 8m. In reality under 10 knots requires a whole new level of investments to pull off well, and even then, it all gets so flat, straight and limited anyway. If you want bang for your buck, two peaks for the really golden foiling range of 10-20 knots is hard to beat (6/4m). Then you just need one killer 9m tube for boosting on tt. Three kite quiver.
