All the foil kites I know of are either medium or high aspect. They are meant to rocket upwind, jump high and float forever. But what if I want a packable spare kite that I can unhook with that generate tremendous pop but doesn't go upwind that well. I'm thinking maybe the old peter lynn arcs were like that but they have been out of production for years. Any candidates? I'm just thinking for travel it would be nice to pack an extra foil kite because they are so small and light just for wakestyle. For tube kites you can have it all, anything from a traditional C kite to the highest aspect floaty tube kites, but when you travel you don't want to pack 6 kites you have to limit them. No strut kites would work too they pack extremely small.

FS Speed4 8/10 dlx/std is also medium ar option, also sometimes referred as Psycho5. I still use a lot 8m dlx with my hydrofoil. Fast kite and drifts nicely and can tolwrate gusts.
