Yaffe 14" or 16" Monkey bars?

I have already decided on the Yaffe Monkey Bars in chrome for my first major upgrade. I've read a few of the threads about how tall people are (I'm 6'3") and how tall their bars are. I've sat on two different bikes with the 12" version of what I'm looking to buy and I thought that those were comfortable, but I never drove them. I think that I'm leaning towards the 14", mainly because of the appearance, but I'm also slightly worried that the 16's won't be as comfortable. I have a slight shoulder issue from a wreck 10yrs ago, but it's only an issue when my arm is way above my head.
So, my question is: do you recommend 14" or 16" for someone in my situation?
Also, if anyone has any pictures of the 14" vs 16" I'd love to see them.
