I use that kite in 6m for foiling. Took off the two centre struts. Works great until you really over power it. Has loads of power but shuts off well in small sizes.

Had the 10m for years and years before foiling. Know the kite really well. Would call it decidedly medium aspect. Loads of grunt. Suits the lower to middle of its range for foiling. At the top it feels a bit like a bull on the end of your lines. 4m would be a pretty manageable bull. They got smoother in the top end with later generations. It's the kind of kite that likes to be thrown around, and rewards active flying.

6m as a two strut, works great foiling from over 16 knots up into the lower 20's.

Cool - thanks for the replies.

It has a "roll-over" bridle design, with a mini 5th. Should I just ignore that and use a single-line flagout?

Yeah, works fine, I ride it on a single front line flagging bar.
