I am about to get an SB160 and have the opportunity to get a Deb R14 +6 fin at a reasonable price. I am not racing but love sailing formula gear for its light wind cruising ability and currently sail an SB159 with a select elite fin. I realise the ideal all round fin is something like an R13 +6 soft but as I am not racing would I really notice that much difference between the R14 & R13 and would the R14 be considerably better than the stock fin. Mainly using 11 & 9sqm sails upto about 13 knots then switch over to slalom gear. I am about 86kgs.
