I cant find the post anymore, but I recall Flysurfer asking what they could change or improve with the Peak kites.
Making an additional size between the 5 and 8 m2, say a 6.5 m2, would be great
I find the gap from 5 to 8 very extreme, and often choose the 5 eventhough underpowered, because it is so much more fun in every way.
But usually have to give in, and take the 8 m2, which feels really really big now.
I would instantly buy a 6.5 m2 Peak4
And minimalists could choose a 4 m2 and a 6.5 m2, and have an awesome 2 kite quiver for waves and fun, and use other kites like the Soul or similar, for less wind.
Or the bigger Peak4 kites.
I experience this huge step almost every time I am out in 10 to 12 knots, a very common wind strength for foiling in waves, where nothing else works, so would be a relief to have a kitesize between the 5 and 8 m2.
And as said, others could very easily use a 6.5 also, even with fewer kites.
Around 10-12 knots for the average weight, a 5 is possible but too small, and the 8 feels really big.
IMO, am I the only one thinking this?
I know I am special, liking small gaps in the "sweet" often used range, and in the big sizes it does not matter much with big steps (IMO), but can only see a benefit in general, being able to offer a 6.5 m2 Flysurfer Peak4
The smallest and biggest sizes are always more tricky in terms of payoff, as they are a minimal sales range, so eventhough some of us would like either a smaller or bigger Peak4, it does not necessarily make sense in terms of sales....
But the "sweetspot" range is another matter, loads of users can benefit.
