Friends, I tried the RX9 in 170 over the weekend and really liked them. But I have read that the RX8 is a bit turnier, and that would suit me just fine. I was planning on getting the RX8 in 165cm, but found a very good deal on 160cm. I am 5'9 and 173. Not so old (48), but very experienced and fit. Is the 160cm a good match for me? My biggest concern is that it will be somewhat less stable on those big turns than the longer length. But that is a fair trade if they will be a bit more maneuverable in the bumps. Am I making too much over two inches (would not be the first time....)Thanks.
