Interested in these models, just wondering if anybody has tried both boards and how much difference there is between the models considering the 2lt volume difference.

Get fella's
Difference is actually 118l to 123L

Just that little bit of extra length / width volume meaning making life easy

Thanks Scotty, must be a typo on on your website shows the 8.3 x 31 at 120lt.
Im trying to decide between the boards, have not demo this modle but riding a 8.3 spitfire which i love, when conditions are good & a 8.2 widepoint when bumpy, looking at replacing the widepoint with a hipster leaning towards the 8.0. I'm 94kg mid 50's
Cheers colin

Thanks colinI better have a look at that. (typo)
I reckon by the sounds of things you have a bit of an act so the 8'0 should be fine.
If you're riding the 8'3 spitfire then no doubt the 8'0 be no worries
cheers
