Hi Clause,
Plenty of great feedback already. Like Bel says, If your ONLY looking at the XL Futura or US147, then definetly go with the US147 as it should be going faster in your 9k to 15k 9m range.

But to be honest with you, if its blowing 9k to 15k, and your looking MAX speed you should consider iS127/137 and 9m/9.5m. You can pump to get going in 9k easily, and in the 15k gusts, you will be hitting around 30k peaks so it will be plenty of light wind fun. Slightly more effort needed c/w the US147, but if max speed in light winds is what you need, this will be the fastest set-up.

Several of last years PWA events were in the 9k to 15k range, if you watch the online videos you will see that they are flying
