Go for a 6:1 you won't regret it. Unless you race, then you will need the standard 4:1 RATIO.

6:1 is class legal for racing on the 14. Has been for a long time.

per Mbounds - go for the 6:1 ratio, you will need a longer sheet, but in higher wind so sweet.

Thanks, I picked up a harken 6:1. I have the same on my 16 just this one is scaled down alittle. The 14 is new to me but I'm looking forward to racing it next year.
