Thanks for your post. Very useful.
To clarify, what I'm looking for, to paraphrase you, is an E80 with a PA rocker line. The volme/size of the E80 is perfect for my requirements but I'd prefer the PA type performance. So, should I get the PA80 or the PA86? From your post I think you are saying that the PA86 feels a bit "bigger" than the E80 despite having the same quoted 4.0 to 6.0 wind range.
