Wow, you`ve got them in a row! Bravo.
If I were you I`d be standing on the beach 1/2 hour trying to make the right decision which one to rig :)
BTW I think the 8 is quite tamed and stable.

At 175 lbs I'm using a 2013 11m torch as my go to kite. With a good small wave surfboard I start at 12 knots and can hold it down in boots up to the high 20's. Unhooked is fun from 14 to the low 20's. Great kite. I think I'll always have at least one torch.

i disagree.....too much gap between 8 and 12! Go for 11m or 10m depend on your weight and where you re kiting.....

Yep agree, I have 6, 8, 10 and 12 and pretty much use the 8 & 12 exclusively.......if I'm finding it too much for the 12 then the 8 will be great. If you want to maximise your quiver then 12, but out of the choice of 10 or 11 I would go 11.

Although an 11m Torch in 12 knots @ 175lb..........I would love to see that!!
