Because, smaller wings are a lot more stable because they at speed dont have the same ponyride, when you put your feet wrong, they just ride along a lot more in control.
Say what now? :o

I think I will give the duotone 1250 a go. It seems to be not too thick, so hopefully drag/speed loss will not be too dramatic and stability will be a bit better. Don't get me wrong, jibes in both directions are 95% safe, but always with a bit of slack and tricky. But can mostly go quickly upwind to get lines streched again.
Anybody already tested this frontwing?
Downloops help huge to avoid slacked lines during a jibe keeping the kite powered during the turn.

Try cutting away from your kite just before you jibe. With this technique I don't get slack in my lines with big or small foils

The moses 633 at 1200cm2 is more agile than the smaller 590. It's more stable at all speeds. So I don't think there's a direct correlation.
