Blade 8.5

I am thnking of getting a bigger kite for those low wind days. The ones when I get the 4.9 in the air and not much is happening except pumping the thing to keep it up. Would a Blade 111 8.5 be too big a step? I am quite confident getting 6ft airs using a bar and harness with the 4.9. In higher winds, the 4.9 is really eratic when the wind gusts. One minute nothing, the next, bye bye terra firma! I heard the 8.5 in low winds will be more stable and give me good air, but I don't want to kill myself
