This is a good point for sure. Pivot definitely is more powerful than the parks.

It is a bit wind / spot dependent and you do not say how much you weight and what type of TT riding you do mainly, but there is definitely overlap between the 12 and 9, but its a lot more convenient with the 10 to 12. If your 7 barely gets used, then j personally look at what kite I use the most. If it's a 9 and you tend to be slightly underpowered then that answer gives itself. If it is 9 and you are usually well powered and do not want to go overpowered then stick with the 9. If you never use your 7 you can still go 9 - 8. There is a big difference in the upper tolerance. My only concern would be the times you do need your 7 tend to be pretty epic days right? Or you do not care? I can hold 9 quite comfortably the 9 in 35 mph in open ocean.
Well I do not own an 8, but my buddy uses it when I go out on my 7 slash...I feel it is the right kite for one the locations I kite...so its very tempting to add it even if I have a 9 and 7 (the 7 is a slash).Goofy_foot wrote: ↑Wed Mar 13, 2019 9:38 pm

That's the problem with traveling to kite, it's season and spot dependent, sometimes I'm glad I pack around the 17.
2). and you do not say how much you weight and what type of TT riding you do mainly,?
3) My only concern would be the times you do need your 7 tend to be pretty epic days right?
Yes, but that's also when I tend to do stupid stuff and get hurt...
4). If you never use your 7 you can still go 9 - 8. There is a big difference in the upper tolerance.
This is interesting, the upper end between the 9 and the 8 seems to be greater then the low range?
What do you feel is the upper end of the 8, not just being able to hold it, but where it feels comfortable?
