Which Kite for High Wind ATB Action?

Last weekend I was flying my Ozone Samurai 4.0M and the wind was gusting 30+ mph. I am still alive... just!!

After an hour of fighting to hang onto the kite, I had to switch to a Flexi Super 10.

This did not really have enough HorsePower to get any decent ATB action

I am thinking about what to invest $$'s in next. My options are:

1. Another Super 10 to go for a stack of 2.
2. A Smaller 4 line. I like the performance of the Samurai, but need a little less power for high wind flying.

What would you recommend for high wind ATB action?

I have 2.1 and 3.0 meter Ozone Little Devils that I use for ATB in high winds. In almost all conditions the 3 meter is fine, but if it really starts blowing (I think 30+ mph would qualify), the 2.1 is great. It is so manoeuverable (sp?) that you can always bail out by putting the kite in a piece of sky that shields you from the brunt of the gust.

The 2m Buster works well in high wind or the 1.8 Beamer should be a good high wind engine based on my experience with the 3.6m and 5m kites
