You know, I just realized something - when the C Quads first came out the
biggest size planned was a 6.3. Now 8.5s are common and they also make 10.5s
and 12.5s. Same story with Peels. Other companies do the same thing, too
(Quadrifoil springs to mind).
Maybe we will see bigger Arcs (et. al.) in the next batch, especially if
people make the demand known to the manufacturers. 10 people bobbing in the
water wishing for a bigger kite are not worth one who writes to the people
who need to hear it - especially if the manufacturers are in windy Maui or

My chart shows it's not even that big, (only 8.0). I think they revised the
sizes recently to more accurately reflect the correct projected areas.
