I agree that 8.5 to 6.6 is OK, but you might consider an 8.0 to fill
out the range. Guess that would mean a Retro, though; I don't think
the Infinity comes in an 8.0.
In addition to being right in between the two, I would rather be on a
9.5 in 8.5 conditions (if you go 9.5 / 8.0 / 6.6) than be on an 8.5 in
7.0 conditions (if you go 9.5/8.5/6.6). 8.0 in 7.0 conditions is no
big deal, especially with a Retro.
