Airush Ultra 12 is amazing !! Go for it.. I , 200 lbs ride on Drifter 2017 12,9,7 and Shinn Foil.
Ultra 12... +1
Today I managed to water start in 7 lully knots (with a Silente).
Great drif during the lulls.
From 8 sustained or 9 knots up, a piece of cake.
Made me wonder if a15m2 would be better (despite most comments that a 12 is about the max recommended size for a LEI).

I foil with Airush Ultra 9-12 and with a Storm Voyager 15. IMO there is a noticeable difference between the Ultra 12 and the Storm 15 in how low the wind they are foilable. The 15 m gets going in next to no wind with 30 m 1 mm thick kite lines.
