There are so many new wings in the pipeline, I donít know what to get...  Are too many options a thing?

I have a Strike 5.0 that I like - light and better upwind, but one more handle would be sweet.   Now I need a smaller size for heavier wind to replace my tattered Ensis  and while I thought Iíd get a smaller Strike, I canít make up my mind:

Thereís wings with mini booms (Slick)
Wings with straight handles (Mantis)
Wings with too many handles
Light wings
Heavier, more durable wings
Gold wings
Windows, No Windows.
One point inflation, two point inflation and one point inflation with shutoff for the strut once inflated.
Different kinds of valves.

Making a choice means youíre bound to make the wrong one in some way!

Other than windows and peripherals, kinda sounds like more of the same?  Which is fine by me, as I remain stoked on my v1.  Wing industry is interesting, as some brands are into v3 or v4 now, some with dramatic re-designs from initial attempts.  Similar to kiting around 2010, seems like the industry is starting to reach consensus on what works and what doesn't.  Seems like a few of the brands got it right from the start and haven't changed much.

I do like the addition of small windows.  I have had a couple close calls with boats and riders coming up from downwind in the big blind spot.  Just a slight bit of a extra peripheral vision will really help.
