Fabio, 16 has alot of power, its lighter feeling and faster. 12 Toro, 16 Rhino is a good seperation. I'm 84 kilo and have ridden the 16 in 9kts (11mph?) low end, didn't get a chance to push the high end. If you want to be lit at the low end get the 18. My best

10 knots is not enough wind for a r2 16

Depends on your weight: I can cruise with my Rhino2 16 in 8 knots (or even 7 I think), but im only 68 kg. Did that last weekend, with both a directional and a small twintip.
