Mamba 7.5 or 7.6

I am looking to buy a boat for doing harder rivers. What is the difference between each size other than volume. I weigh 125lbs. Which boat would be easier to roll? The 7.6 is a bit wider.

I would go larger

Gives you extra weight capacity for gear. Mamba fits the futa bags well and offers a great chance to enjoy multidays from your boat. I would get the extra tenth of a foot with the extra volume. I have an 8.6 but weigh 190
