Thanks for the helpful insight. You have given me lots to think about. I have pretty much decided that it will be Ritter due to the overall flexibility of the design.
As far as size goes, I looked at 8x20, but decided that if I was going to go that big, I would go all the way to 12x20 instead. Though I admit I thought briefly about 16x20, but only briefly. Now I just have to decide on the size, I might buy a 7x17 for now and add the 12x20 back later..............lots to decide!
Thanks again for all the help! Its greatly appreciated!
