I have used the 14M 3 times in very light winds and I can not imagine the need to go for a 16M at your size. The 14M is a light wind machine.

Sea&Sun,

I saw you have a Caution answer as your avatar. Do ride a 16, 12 or other size? How does the caution compare with the Rebel 14?

Thanks for all the advice, think I will go for the 14m. Just need to raise the funds. How much are you guys paying for your kites?

The 14 Rebel has more low end then the 12 Answer. I really love the 12 Answer and use it 95% of the time. I have only been on the Rebel 3 times in very light winds so I am very limited on what I can tell you about it. I think it will be a great kite. You can get a feel for how a kite flies in light winds but you really need to demo it in higher wind to be sure. Another thing I have never flown and SLE I didn't like. :thumb:
