  Two new Xtras

Hey Celia,

Yes, a new 'Xtra LV' is coming, but they're just going to call it the Xtra, and the current Xtra becomes the 'Xtra HV'. It's a little bit odd and confusing, but I guess TR figured it was more 'accurate' to do it that way.

The 'new Xtra' (i.e. 'LV but we're not calling it that') has a deck height of 12". The 'old Xtra' (now called HV) has a deck height of 12.8", not the 13.5" you stated (though I think they did reduce it by 0.4" from 2012).

The other new Xtra is the rotomold one, the Vortex. Like the 'LV' it as a 12" deck height. Looking at total volume and cockpit volume, it seems very much like a plastic version of the 'LV' rather than the HV.
