I'll give it a try ($89 + tax and duty, not exactly a risk)

Min for the 4m is 20 knots 65kg.
3m min 25 knots.
But it will start being great at 35knots.

WOW completely changed my mind on the 12m a15 ultralight.
Bar pressure is good turning is great.
55cm 23m line's i had so much fun in a very gust Field surrounded by House's.
2 gusting 10 knots.

Weird your 9m A15 doesn't hold air. Maybe it has a rip? The simplest way to adjust foil kites is to adjust Z length.

I read you don't like the 12m A15 anymore? You said it doesn't depower enough? Is B going slack fully depowered at the window edge?

The difference between A15 and Genesis with jackomixer, is A15 still won't have as short bar trim as Genesis.
The 9m was heavily used from Spain material is soft.
The bridle has heavy amounts of salt in it washing would probably help.
12m complete different feeling 😍.

Adjust Z see how it feels, likely have to extend it. If B is not going slack you need to extend all Z,C and B in ratio. So for Jackomixer that is 3Z for 2C and 1B. You can slacken it way more than needed at the window edge to get more depower through the window. The A15 will need more bar trim than the Genesis. You should consider increasing your bar throw and losing the chickenloop too to help.

There is a line plan for the A15 somewhere I think, otherwise email Pansh for it.

Recoating Pansh kites will not work with shoegoo because they have a silicone coating... you could find something that would stick to it, or something to strip the silicone off, or just buy a new one (the best option I think). Likely though after tuning kite will be much better. But kites do become so porous that they are quite shit, recoating is the only way to fix it.
