I just got rid of 15. Just never used it even on race wing. If the wind is sub 10 I put big wing on and 10m with 27m lines (I ride that combo in 5 to 8kts). I guarantee you if you are riding the light wind edge you are more likely to keep a long lined 10m in the air over a 12 or 15....they weigh too much and you can't work them in the air as quickly....eventual taco fall. If you are a TT rider then I totally get it....as a foiler with wing choices for cruising or boosting I don't see reason for anything over 12m
Disagree, 15m has a bigger span and floats on the wind. Using long lines (27m is long) it i nearly is impossible te get input from the kite and it makes it hard to steer. 10m in 5 knots i have never seen, i have seen it with a 15m.

we can agree to disagree....plus knot readings are like opinions....everyone has a different sense....and levels of height have huge impact. Mine are based on a personal weather station on a 12 foot fixed pole in open water in Ontario. I would choose the 10 on long lines every time.
