We recommend the 12mm standard strength kit as your starter kit
The standard kit has 12mm foils in grades 1.0 and 0.8, this is the ideal starting point for people with dominance issues.
We are trying to correct any dominance problems by doing the minimum to achieve the desired result (more is not better). However some shooters do request (and need) stronger foils i.e. 0.6 and 0.3 which are available as higher strength kits in both 12mm and 16mm sizes.
Shooters may find that the 16mm foils are better for the novice, as gun mount and head position is less critical with the bigger size foils.
