Me: 150 pounds, %95 foil riding, non-race
OK, I just recently purchased the 12m Soul exclusively for foiling in very light winds on a large frying pan wing (Moses 633).
The remainder of my quiver is all Cloud strut-less so you pretty much cannot find two animals which perform so differently.
I think my recent swim (2nd Soul session) can be blamed on this operator forgetting for a split second mid-turn that it was not a Cloud.

I’m 65kg, I probably didn’t give it enough chance as I’d decided to go back to LEIs. I can quite comfortably hold my 10m Bandit in similar winds, and it handles gusts much better.
