Mamba 8.5 or 8?

Need advice on Mamba 8.5 vs 8.
About me, 50+, short, 200 lbs class 2+ experience.
Dont see myself going above class 3.
I am on the edge of both weight ranges. should I pick the smaller boat its rated for up to 215 lbs.

BTW I demo'd a large Villain and loved it.
demo'd a fluid detox and thought it was so so.

my boat, that I will keep for longer trips is a remix XP10
