As the title suggests, has anyone tried either the new 7m or 9m Souls and what do they think of them so far .

Many thanks

I have the 6m, 7m, 8m, 9m and 10m

I assume that no one has responded because they all fly about the same except for the size. I like having all the sizes and try to make the best guess which the fly, usually the wind varies more than the kite size. Today I used the 8m and probably would have been better with the 9m, sometimes it is the other way.

In no way am I a proficient foil kite rider... but, I purchased the 12m in May and I could not enjoy it much. I only foil, I mostly foil in gusty conditions, I weigh 150lbs. My new 8m seems just perfect. Yes, it might be under-powered at times but it's not dropping me in the water even with near glass no whitecaps maybe 9-10mph winds. And so far it feels like it's a manageable de-power up to 20mph. Love the snappy turns compared to the 12m. And I even can re-launch after a 15 minute float. A nice exercise from my normal life with Clouds.
Note: I'm riding a larger wing, 633 Moses and similar.

Have 8 - 10 - 12 - 15
Borrowed a 9 from a friend last Weekend.
Amazing kite, a little bit slower than the 8, much faster than the 10, a bit more hangtime and power than the 8, much less than the 10.

I'm sorry to bust in here, but you should try a Hyperlink V1 or V2 in these sizes.

I rode a demo at AWSI in the Gorge this August and immediately bought one. I think this video he was on the 7m I had or maybe the 8m.
