      Hi Todd,
      Oh yeah, I forgot one possibly critical detail:  this is with handles, not a bar!  And in such low wind I have to really work the kite hard.  I'm not sure it would be possible with a bar, I'd be surprised if you could turn it fast enough to keep it well powered.  Anyway, that might account for at least some of the difference.

      I use the f.one board 215 with xxxl ks model and need at least a steady 10 to get going and I weigh 215lb.It starts to get fun in 15 +.There's no way it would pull me in 5 or 6knots in the water you think that 15lb. makes a differents?

      FWIW, I use non-KS models of the same kites and I love 'em.  I've found
      the XXXL to be remarkably luff resistant and very responsive for it's
      size.  But obviously it's not a Flexi stacker!  In fact I can't ever
      remember water-crashing it except for one time that I was in a tidal
      creek where the current was about headed downwind at 4 kts and wind
      only 6 or so, and lines kept going slack! For me XXXL is useable over
      5-6 kts and starts getting too wild over 12 or so.  I'm 200# on 7'2"
      Fox board.  but I'm a pussy, probably Todd is more courageous  :-))
