I have a 16, yes it is a big kite and it pulls like a SOB, but it is really fun to jump the thing in 10 mph. I weigh 175 and am usually lit on the 16 in 15mph. The 9 can come out of the bag and fly nicely from 15 to 25. The warriors rock on and I can't wait for the psycho's!

Please note that the 16.5 is a design with a higher AR, this is quite noticable in feel on the water. The 12,5 is not nice in underpowered conditions it is hard to keep your ground when sining. The 16.5 is much better at this, as soon as you can sail you can also go upwind and do little jumps. When you are 90+ kg just go for the 16.5 and hang on, or upgrade with WAC.

If you're looking for Warriors, keep an eye on Ebay.I've watched a bunch of them go through there for cheap lately.
Picked up a 12.5 for myself.
$650.00-never been wet.
Who's got the WAC upgrade in the states?

I know but planning for next spring, someone has one for sale at £500 on the uk website!
I'm planning on getting a smaller kite than my 9M at some point so that i will have 3 kites and one board (don't have much dosh therefore loads of overtime) ?7M warrior or maniac or go for a Lei 2002 as people are selling loads of gear off relatively cheap!

once Sven's got my 9.25M fixed I'll drive over to pick it up if you still got your 12M I'll have a luck at it then, I 'm interested but don't have money at present.

Girlfriends are so expensive, and don't understand the need for need for new/better/more/less powerful kites
