Shower flow regulator

I have a new unvented system. It's great, too great even with the showers, the water blasts out.

We have 2 Mira showers (Gem88 and a Coda) and I've read that with high pressure systems a flow regulator is available from Mira and fits in the hose.

I've seen many (cheaper) similar regulators which screw into the hose outlet and then the hose on to them. They come in all sort of flow rates from 6 litres/min up to 12 litres/min (this is the rate the Mira one restricts to).

Current shower delivers 15 litres/min and seems too strong.

Any ideas what flow rate gives a decent shower, I imagine the 6 litres/min very puny and I'm no eco warrier. Would 10 or 12 litres/min still give a decent shower?

10 litres should be get used to the flow, many electric showers are under 6 but the users adapt.
Crosswater do a 8lm regulator, water delivery is perfectly good if that helps. That would be on a regular sized shower handset
