Because we are a little out of subject... could someone advise what XR4 sizes would be the best for 70kg rider? 6-9-12m on twintip boards? Is it the same wind range for XR5?
I’m 74kg, ride TT, I used to have 12+9 XR3 and 7m XR4 and swapped the former with 11+9m XR5. I find this quiver covering all of rideable wind range. Though the more I ride, the more I’d like to have 7-8-9-10-11m quiver for finer match (impossible for a family guy).

I considered 6-9-11-13.5 but the 19m LW was too good to pass up.

ChickenD!ken - many thanks for sharing your experience with wind range and sizes. I was afraid that 6m would be too small. Because I have already got XR4 12m then 6-9-12 have to be perfect :)
Thanks again!

My pleasure. I would appreciate your feedback as well once you get an impression. Would be nice to have a thread for the XR5 with a good amount of user experience..

Cheers.
