Lightning vs Striker 6man canoe

Can anyone give me a detailed difference between these two Bradley canoes? What is the difference in length, width, rocker, etc? Is one canoe theorized to be better in different conditions? Essentially, why would a crew/club prefer one over the other? Thanks.

I had the opportunity to speak to Sonny about these 2 canoes. In essence, the Lightning is a foot longer and has less rocker than the Striker. He says the Lightning will be advantageous in flat to moderate conditions, while the Striker will perform best in rough conditions.
He also says with either canoe you can adjust your stroke and rate to make it respond, regardless of the conditions.
