Simple question. Which one of these skis will do better in the moguls for a level 6-7 skier?

I am trying to improve my mogulability.

RX8s are nice in bumps, RX9s are nicer.

I thought the RX9's are a stiffer ski.

What is better for moguls, stiffer or softer?

Just stiff enough that you can get pressure towards the tips to engage for the next turn, just soft enough that front/back balance is easy to maintain.

I expect pagamony's son is a bit lighter than I am.
