My goal was achieved 6 kites for the price of my used 12m soul.
The 4m genesis 20 to 35 knots is brilliant fun and also wasn't that heavy in 40 knots plus twintip 0 issues .My learning has now accelerated massively with so many occasions that I'm the only person on the beach that's perfectly powered.
The 12m ultralight a15 I can confirm reverse launches with a couple of pumps 7to10 knots
Overall I've been surprised by the 12m genesis from 7 knots then picking up to gusting 22 still full power on the trim learning to tack onto toeside in that session
I agree with the throw away view if they get damaged or abit of sail tape with 0 cares
I absolutely love the a15 but on price point the genesis wins
