I guess this is where the guys who have micro size foils win on foil kite choice, the difference between my 5 mtr hyperlink and my 6 reo in those conditions was
night and day.

I guess the foil kites have the biggest advantage over LEIs for hydrofoiling in the lightest of winds... then the advantages become less noticeable in the smaller sizes.

Question - It sounds like the 5m HL is more powerful than your 6m Reo (perhaps more like a 7m Reo in power?). Was the 6m Reo more fun to ride that day due to it being the correct amount of power (as opposed to being over-powered on the 5m HL)?
Or was it less about the amount of power, and more that the Reo provided better flying and power delivery characteristics than the HL in on the particular conditions you had that day?
the 5 Hyperlink was very much more powerful than the 6 reo, more like the power I would have got from my 8 reo,
the winds were way past the optimum for the Hlink, the depower fully pulled in still had me on my toes, I could get up on the foil by just a tiny careful mini kite dive.
It was frisky when I launched it in the slightly lighter winds, I have never seen a foil kite go from flat on the beach to fully inflated so fast, no floppy ends stuff going on, just a little sand slide and boom! solid.
