No doubt get the ERA 14. For as much light wind as we get around here you'll miss way too many days with the 13 or 12. The 14M ERA is faster than the 13M roo and pulls better than the 15M. If money is a huge factor you might still find a smoking deal on a 07 15M roo.

Tough call... between the two I would guess the 13 08 waroo (NOT THE 07) would be better.

Mainly because Best has better service and if you don't like it you can return it (regardless of condition) no questions asked within 30 days.

At 215 you may need the extra meter anyway.

I've only ridden the 9m 08 (which I can ride in 20 at 190lbs), not the 13m so I am not sure of the high and low end of the 13.
