I think we are forgetting one important thing: 8m is used in stronger wind. In 12kn 8m cannot be looped fast enough to pull on the strapless board. Plus, the rider is holding a board with one hand, at least when learning, which makes it really difficult to loop.Peter_Frank wrote: ↑Sun Mar 08, 2020 5:28 pmI agree with most comments here, ups and downs of both so depends on what you personally prefer.
But indeed it CAN replace two LEI kites, yes.
Only comment I strongly disagree with, is saying a LEI can loop you up better.
This is so not true - if you loop a foil kite, does not matter if a small 8 m2, or a 15 m2, you will get looooooads of powerspike.
This is the reason why it can go so low in windstrength, even if not that big.
