It depends on whether you use the reverse launch bridles or not. These effectively require duoble the bar motion for the same motion at the kite compared to without bridles. I have found a 65 cm bar works fine for 11.8 and 10 airblast without bridles. I prefer the 50cm bar for the 8.4 and can use it with the 10 also. I think the 60cm s2 would work finefor the 11.8 and 8.4 as long you don't use the bridles. I rodered the 60 for these kites sizes also.

Hey Ryan the 70 will be the best. I use the 60 but go well over powered with the 12m so only small rider input is needed.
