What is the difference between a Penobscot 16 and a Penobscot 16RX (Old Town), and should it be a concern?

The RX denotes Royalex|

Old Town also makes a canoe in three layer polyethylene that is 16' 4" but they call that the Penobscot 164.

The Penobscot 164 is poly and the RX is royalex. Royalex is the better material as pblanc said.
The tendency of poly hulls to distort |

or make one on your own. Ever visit Sparkey's Forum? I'll have to get the lynx.

It was a bit rougher than it looked in the pictures, but it's in my backyard now. Drove through New Orleans at rush hour on a Friday night to get it.
